A soft, ash covered goat cheese from the heart of France (Couer = heart).
The “Coeur du Berry” is only produced in a small natural area located south of Loire River, in the heart of France, an area that enjoys a mild climate.
This cheese is made into a special shape, dedicated to a near-by village unique in France, St Valentin, whose tradition is celebrated around the world. Since the 1980s the village has promoted itself as ‘The Village of Love’, taking full advantage of its name.
On the palate, Coeur du Berry, is a rich and mellow goat’s cheese, with a tangy taste. Its bright, lemony flavours and sweet-grass-y milky notes and leaves a clean, gently tingling finish.
What to pair it with? There’s so much going on in this cheese we love it on it’s own! But if you’re wanting to spruce up your cheese platter, try it with some fresh red grapes and a floral honey. Light fruity white wine, champagne, and pilsner beer.
Please note, this cheese is made using animal rennet.
