What is an AOP Charentes-Poitou butter?
AOP Charentes-Poitou butter is exclusively produced with dairy cream from Charente, Charente-Maritime, Deux-Sèvres, Vienne and Vendée.
Thanks to the cream’s slow biological maturing phase, unique to AOP Charentes-Poitou butter, it asserts its own personality.
Our Echiré AOP butter, produced in wooden churns, possesses qualities which make it the king of puff pastry, croissants and cakes throughout the world.
