The Chevrotin des Aravis, goat cheese made in the Haute Savoie region, is quite different from goat cheeses produced in the Loire Valley area.
In fact the manufacturing process is very similar to the one used for Reblochon cheese and gives it a different texture.
Chevrotin des Aravis has the odour of goat and flowers and his taste is soft, nearly sweet.
The manufacturing process gives it a mellow mild fine textured pate with a yellowish-orange rind stained with white mould.
You will enjoy this cheese with a light red wine such as pinot noir
Full-bodied red wine: Vin de Savoie (Mondeuse grape)
White wine: St Joseph (Marsanne, Roussanne grapes)
