Capriole O'Banon 6oz
With a name like O’Banon, this delicately wrapped cheese is a definitively American take on the traditional Provencal cheese Banon, a French chèvre wrapped in eau-de-vie soaked chestnut leaves. From Indiana-based farm Capriole, this fresh, milky wheel was a 2014 ACS winner, taking home first place for its singular flavor. Known for artisanal American cheesemaking, Capriole is a goat cheese sensation that’s become a staple of the Midwest cheese scene. Wrapped in bourbon-soaked chestnut leaves, this soft cheese is imbued with a mellow, slightly vanilla aroma with notes of wheat bread. Velvety and mouth-coating, this delectable iteration of the French classic is bright and lactic, with a lemony citrus tang and hint of fresh milk alongside undertones of aged oak. Perfect for picnics, this gorgeous wheel pairs perfectly with a glass of bubbly or a dry white wine.
