Coeur du Berry
€9.95 | 150g
Origin: Loire Valley, France
Soft, creamy goat’s cheese covered in vegetable ash for a distinctive dark rind which contrasts beautifully with the bone-white interior. Produced very near the village of ‘Saint Valentin’ south of the Loire River, which benefits from a mild microclimate. For obvious reasons, the village promotes itself as the ‘Village of Love’, inspiring the cheese makers to develop this heart shaped cheese.
Reminiscent of classic Loire Valley goat’s cheeses, the flavour is mild and creamy with a distinctive note of hazelnut coming through on the finish which also has a lactic tang. The texture is refreshingly light, making it perfect as an appetizer but it is equally well suited to finishing a meal.
