Product Description

Since its creation in 1893, Sèvre & Belle dairy cooperative remained settled in Celles-sur Belle in a place known locally as “La Vée”. This hand ladled log shaped cheese is ripened using a Geotrichum mould. Sometimes known as ‘frog skin’ this old fashioned mould is responsible for drawing moisture from the curd as the cheese matures and gives it a slightly yeasty flavour typical of traditional goat cheeses of this region. When young the flavour is subtle with a characteristic ‘limey’ finish while the paste is dense yet soft and pliable. Fresh and tangy. St Maure Caprifeuille_702467
