Petit Billy

Made from the pasteurized milk of goats grazing the medieval town of Billy in France's Loire Valley; but you're right, 'billy' is also a male goat - a cheesy coincidence! These small rounds of fresh chevre are incredibly light with a pleasant, lactic tang. Made by the same producer as our lightly aged Loire goats like Valencay and Selles Sur Cher, but without the addition of external mold cultures. An ideal starter on a summer cheese plate, these little beauties leave no residual flavor to mar the procession of a board. Choose a regional grassy white, such as a Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
