Coeur de Touraine is succulent little farmer’s goat’s cheese that comes from the same family as the Selles-sur Cher.
Its particularity is that the form is a heart shape.
One can enjoys its rind that has a wonderful perfumed aromatic taste. The cheese matures after a minimum of three weeks with the rind changing color from a blue/ white to an attractive ivory.
The cheese represents a good example of a goat’s cheese with a snow-white pate (dough).
The initial taste is quite milky and then becomes goaty, a few seconds later it melts in the mouth.
Occasionally it has the tendency to leave a salty taste on the palate.
During the affinage (maturing period ) the cheese’s savors mix with the odors of the cellar giving it that extra country flavor we all love. A suggestion: Enjoy the cheese on with nuts and raisin bread. Sublime!
Sauvignon grape: white Sancerre
