Discovering Saucisson d'Arles: A Flavorful Tradition Dating Back to 1655

More than just a charcuterie, Saucisson d'Arles is a true culinary institution rooted in the rich history of the city.

The story begins in 1655 when the Arlesian charcutier, Godart, decides to innovate and create what would become the famous Saucisson d'Arles, also known as sosisol.

Godart, a pioneering master charcutier, achieves rapid success with his creation and decides to market his saucisson even in the capital, Paris.

Today, it is Maison Genin that continues this ancient tradition, offering charcuterie enthusiasts a unique taste experience.

Composition: A Perfect Balance of Flavors

True to its recipe, this dry charcuterie from France consists exclusively of lean beef, lean pork, and pork fat subtly seasoned with salt, pepper, and aromas.

Its characteristic gray-pink cylindrical shape, weighing around 200 grams, and dimensions ranging from 15 to 20 centimeters in length with a diameter of 4 to 5 centimeters make it a recognizable artisanal product.


Saucissons do not appreciate the low temperatures of the fridge.

Therefore, if you prefer to enjoy them a bit more seasoned, we recommend keeping them in their original packaging and placing them in the vegetable compartment.

Food/Wine Pairing: An Invitation to Culinary Harmony

Saucisson d'Arles deserves to be enjoyed in all its splendor, accompanied by a carefully chosen wine.

Connoisseurs traditionally recommend a rosé or white wine, but nothing surpasses the harmony created with a regional red wine.

Opt for a nectar from the vineyards of Provence, Languedoc, or the Rhône Valley for an unforgettable taste experience.

The proud inhabitants of Arles savor this delight as an aperitif, often accompanied by a glass of pastis, adding a local touch to this unique gastronomic experience.

In summary, Saucisson d'Arles is not just a simple charcuterie; it is a living testimony to the Arlesians' passion for good food, passed down from generation to generation.

A gastronomic journey that combines tradition, artisanal craftsmanship, and conviviality with every bite.
