Sainte-Maure de Touraine

$16.99/EA
Yet another classic Loire Valley goat. Pasteurized chevre with a vegetable ash coat and piece of straw reinforcing its midsection. Hand-ladled curds receive close attention in our caves where we develop the thin, mottled mold rind over a period of 3-4 weeks. The result: no thick, slipping skin, no soapy, goaty bite. Just balanced tang with walnut aromas and a lemony finish. Beautiful with a Red Chinon or a dry Vouvray.

    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! 

  • Rose

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.
