Product Description

WHAT IT TASTES LIKE: Piquant, mushroomy, nutty and goaty paste with a nice salty balance. Bloomy rind with blue mould spots.

WHERE IT COMES FROM: Our Crottin de Chavignol is made by Emmanuel and Margueritte Melet on their farm in Cosne-sur-Loire, a town in the Sancerre region of the Loire Valley in France. Crottin literally means horse dung, with reference to the colour and shape only! When younger this cheese has a soft texture that becomes harder as it ages.
