What you need to know

Rosette de Lyon is a dry, pure pork sausage that comes from a long, rustic tradition of homemade charcuterie. It consists of coarsely chopped pork meat and fat, spices and a hint of garlic. The meat must come from noble cuts, like the shoulder. The mixture is stuffed into a natural pork casing. Known as a bung or rosette, because of its pink color, this casing gives the sausage its characteristic, slightly conical shape. The sausage is then placed in a net and dried. It is allowed to mature for longer than other sausages; from 6 weeks for smaller versions to 4 months for the largest. The rosette is the largest of the sausages; it can be as long as 40 inches!




Characteristic, conical shape; coarse-cut, the pieces of meat and fat are evenly distributed.


Strong flavor.
