“The term terroir is generally understood to be the effect that soil and microclimate have on the flavor of a wine. When the term is applied to cheese, as it is increasingly done, it includes the same factors of turf and weather as for wine, but goes on to include an animal--usually a cow, sheep or goat; vegetation, and naturally occurring molds”. … The term terroir, it should be said, can only legitimately be applied to artisan cheeses; manufactured cheese loses all sense of terroir when milk is combined from several hundred dairies, pasteurized at high temperatures, and the cheeses not given time to ripen or develop flavor.
Wine Business Monthly, February 1, 2002, Maria Lorraine Binchet.
