Petit Billy 8 oz

$12.99/Each


Made from the pasteurized milk of goats grazing the medieval town of Billy in France's Loire Valley, these rounds of chevre present a pleasant, lactic tang in a light, whipped paste. Traditionally, the disc of fresh goat’s milk is lovingly swaddled in a chestnut leaf. This little wrapped beauty is made by the same producer as our lightly aged Loire goats Valençay and Selles Sur Cher, but without the addition of external mold cultures. An ideal starter on a summer cheese plate, as a slice of Petit Billy does not leave the palate overwhelmed. Let this light cheese develop with a regional grassy white wine, such as a Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
