Welcome to the Castle Truffle
Nestled atop a hill overlooking the Dordogne, in the small village of Coux and Bigaroque in Périgord Noir in a secret place, our truffière consisting of more than 550 Oaks Truffle offers you its finest black diamonds: The black truffle of Périgord : Tuber Melanosporum.
The Trufficulture our passion:
It is with passion that with my dog Largo, I ride every day the ranks of The Truffière So that in the beautiful season in winter we can discover what nature offers more wonderful for our palate and our taste buds.
Indeed, the trufficulture is a long-term work, it is a question of gathering all the year the conditions necessary to the flourishing of this precious underground mushroom that is the truffle.
From the size of the trees to the ideal watering and the preparation of the soils, their keeping cool during the summer by schemes that must be imagined, the use of our animals with horns for the natural maintenance, until the harvest Artisanal truffle, there are a thousand occasions of "trufficultiver".
But all the pleasure is there, at every moment until the fateful moment when the very first black truffle of the season is ready to be tasted: a Truffle butter On a slice of toasted bread, A peppered Omelet, where just pasta with a truffle sauce that Myriam has the secret of.
