At Poncelet everything revolves around cheese, the absolute star of the shop. Their windows display over 350 varieties of this product, all of them meeting the standards of the most demanding palates. From France, the country of cheese par excellence, they feature Brie, Camembert, Livarot or Roquefort, sharing a space with Italian Gorgonzola, Parmesan or Mozzarella, with the British Chester or Stilton; the Dutch Edam or the Swiss Emmenthal or Gruyère. There is also room for Spanish cheeses, which are the house’s specialty. From our country they have everything from Galician Tetilla, San Simón or Ulloa to the Asturian Cabrales or the Basque Idiazábal, as well as different Manchegos and Torta del Casar from Extremadura.
But man doesn’t survive on cheese alone. Poncelet also offers a wide range of complementary products like pâtés, jams, honey, candied egg yolk threads, quince jelly, champagne, dates, walnuts, salmon, anchovies and carefully selected Iberian products, as well as all sorts of accessories and a wine cellar especially devised to match any variety that can be found at the store.
