Selles-Sur-Cher 6 oz

This item is currently unavailable.


Unaged goat’s milk cheese arrives from France’s Loire Valley to Murray’s aging caves, where it’s coated in vegetable ash and salt which develops the perfect rind. Thin and cohesive, the rind cloaks a tiny, oozing creamline atop a fluffy paste with the texture of damp clay. The mineral flavor of the rind gives way to a briny, tangy center with notes of freshly-mowed grass. Balance its earthy notes with some Rustic Bakery Meyer Lemon Shortbread cookies and a spoonful of honey.

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.
