Capriole Piper's Pyramide

$45.00/Lb


Like its pyramidal shape, the flavor profile of this goat cheese has four distinct features that all support one another. There’s the fudgy, dense paste that tastes of sweet cream; the gooey creamline that adds a silky lusciousness; the pillowy, cloudlike rind; and a dusting of paprika to play against the mild meadow notes of high-end chèvre. Piper’s Pyramide is a monument to American artisanal cheesemaking at its finest.

Pour a glass of...
  • 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!


  • Merlot

    A smooth and medium-bodied wine with a more rounded flavor than other reds. Dark fruits are present but with minimal tannins and no noticeable spice.

    Pair with: Earthy tommes like Toma Walser, mellow Fontina, or a lightly aged goat cheese like Leonora.


  • Sparkling Wine

    Champagne, Cava, Prosecco, anything with bubbles!

    Pair with: The effervescence of Sparkling Wines makes for a great pairing with richer, fattier cheeses that coat the mouth: think La Tur and Brunet, or a triple creme like Brillat Savarin or Delice de Bourgogne.
