Ste Maure de Touraine

Sainte Maure is the king of Touraine goat cheese. This cheese is easily recognized because it has a long straw that traverses the middle. The straw is placed there to facilitate handling of the Sainte Maure de Touraine. The aroma is of walnut. The Sainte Maure de Touraine has a slightly salty taste and depending on the period of maturation, the savour is nutty. A Saint Maure farm cheese must have a thin, smooth rind with blue-grey moulding.
