Small Goat's Milk Cheese Little Individual Cheeses Rind Rinded Cheese Cut Cheese Raw Milk Unpasteurised

Crottin de Chavignol AOP

The Loire Valley’s ubiquitous little goat’s cheese, a petit partner for the Loire's minerally Sauvignon Blanc wines - a perfect example of the French concept of Terroir, an idea so important to cheese and wine pairing. We offer Crottin as young cheeses - softer, citric, grillable or mature - hard, flinty and intense

  • Milk

    Unpasteurised goat's milk

  • Rennet

    Traditional animal rennet

  • Origin

    Chavignol, Loire, France

  • Our suggestion

    Cut the young ones in half and grill them, cut side up, serve traditionally with grilled endive and pears or experiment with jam or marmalade! A hard mature Crottin needs a bottle of Sancerre, Poully Fume or Quincy opening, along with another goaty friend from the Loire - how about a Selles-sur-Cher?
