Behold: The Pyramid of Cheese. This Loire Valley pasteurized goat cheese takes its shape from Napoleon who demanded that the pointed tops be removed after his military failings in Egypt. We cave age this one, meaning we grow the rind to ensure a thin, cohesive skin that's never bitter or soapy, and dense paste that's lightly piquant, with the minerally notes of our Cave 3. Great with dry sparklers. As seen in the New York Times.
