About

Langres is a speciality cheese made in small dairies in the Champagne region and possibly dates back to the time of the Merovingian kings who reigned from about 500 -700AD, although it became well known and widely appreciated in the middle of the 18th century. Its name comes from the principal town which commercialised the cheese, north east of Dijon in the Haute Marne region. With time, Langres became the object of a flourishing market and traders bought the cheese fresh from the farmers and matured it themselves, exporting it to Paris or Geneva.
