The Briquette du Forez is matured, until dry, in humid cellars. The rind is a natural white mould that thickens over the ripening period. There is only a small amount produced that is made entirely from the farm, and it is very difficult to find in the market place. The taste has a pronounced vegetable plant savour that is pleasurable to the palate. This cheese is very fresh and creamy, the pâte is soft and has an odour of goat cheese.
Red wine: Côte Roannaise (Gamay Noir grape)
