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
Unpasteurised goat's milk
Traditional animal rennet
Chavignol, Loire, France
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?
