Le Chevre Noir

Made in the cheddar style, and aged for one year, this goat's milk cheese continuously surprises. Hard and crumbly, with one of the longest finishes and refreshingly fruity flavors, this cheese inevitably gets people's attention. Sweet and amiable with a little bit of crunch, try this with a Loire Valley red wine like Chinon.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Pinot Grigio

    A lighter, crisper white wine. Tends to be refreshing and fruity, with aromas of stone fruit, peach, quince, and lemon.
    Pair with: Creamy goat or mixed milk cheese with a crisp acidic element. La Tur or Brunet are great alongside the fruit-tart flavors of the wine.

  • Hoppy Beers

    Pale Ale, IPA, Amber, Red Ale

    Hops, glorious hops! Think of hops as the seasoning for beer: they lend the bitter yin to balance malt’s sugary yang. In IPAs and other hoppy beers this humble flower takes center stage. Flavors range from grassy to grapefruit, earthy and dry to resinous pine, depending on which hop varietals are used.
    Pair with: Cheeses with enough body to stand up to the bitterness, like clothbound cheddar or aged Gouda.

  • Malbec

    This rustic wine is inky and dark, full-bodied with plenty of tannins. Fruity flavors of plums and berries are contrasted by spice and leather.
    Pair with: Equally toothsome cheeses like Boerenkaas Gouda.
