AOP Crottin de chavignol (goat milk) - 70g - a nutty and goaty great classic
AOP Crottin de Chavignol is the most famous goat cheese of the many varieties produced in the Loire Valley.
Crottin de Chavignol is subtle and slightly nutty. In its youth, its dough is solid and compact, and its rind is white. As it ripens, the dough becomes crumbly and the mould on the rind matures into a bluish colour.This cheese is the claim to fame for the village of Chavignol, France, which has only two hundred inhabitants.
Each Mons cheese is individually "affine" or refined meaning treated according to the technical process that create, ripen and develop cheese: regulated temperature, humidity, position within the different caves, whether the cheese should be kept wrapped or unwrapped, and on what the cheese should rest. Herve Mons is Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2000.
