Why we love it: 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. A tradition that 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. The rind is slightly dusted with a thin layer of ash under the rind, creating a visually striking cheese.
*Only available through out Christmas and sometimes Easter. If you would like Coeur du Berry for a special occasion, please reach out and we will see if we can bring it in for you.
