Chevrot

$16.99/EA
Chevrot, you’re such a brain. Covered in a delicately wrinkled rind, we cave-age Chevrot to the top of its class, sporting a dense, lemony center, surrounded by a mushroomy, piquant creamline full of earthy intensity. Fashioned from pasteurized goat’s milk in a century-old cooperative in Poitou, France, just south of the Loire Valley, each batch of Chevrot is hand-ladled into forms, ensuring that every round maintains a fresh, grassy core that reflects the chalky, mineral-rich soil of Poitou-Charentes. After weeks in our own caves at Murray’s, where the cheese is patted, flipped, and brushed by our cave team, the effort is evident: an herbaceous rind redolent of wet slate that gives way to the peppery creamline protecting a cheesecake-rich core. Drizzle with wildflower honey and serve alongside a floral Sancerre to play up the sweet, clean finish of the cheese.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit
    Pair with: Bright, tangy goat’s milk cheeses like Westfield Capri and buttery bloomy rinds like Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Chenin Blanc

    Crisp and acidic with light minerality. You may smell stone fruit, apples, pear, quince, even some fresh herbs.

    Pair with: Tangy Loire Valley goat cheese to bring out crisp, mineral qualities in both. Something like Selles-sur-Cher will work perfectly! 

  • Cider

    Brie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.

    English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.
    Pair with: : Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.

    Basque/Normandy : barnyardy and funky, but still with a little sweetness.
    Pair with: A beefy washed rind, like Grayson or Hudson Red to contrast the sugar and bring out the funk.

     

    American Cider: often, but not always on the sweeter side.
    Pair with: Sweet and earthy Bleumont Bandaged Cheddar or malty Bleu d’Auvergne.
