Poneau is a cows' milk cheese based on Pont l’Évêque which is ripened with Pommeau (apple brandy) and covered with almond and walnut slivers. This explains its name as a word combination of Pont and Pommeau. Pommeau gives the cheese the slightly sweet taste of apple which wonderfully combines with that of almonds and walnut. It is produced in the Nord-Pas de Calais region of France.
With its smooth, creamy texture, it is ideal for the classic cheese plate in its splint box bottom. Square in shape, it has a nice caramel coloured exterior and a creamy, yellowish interior. It develops a light aroma of apples and nuts and has a fat to dry matter content of 45%.
