Compostelle

a goat cheese with a scallop shape

This nice goat cheese is produced in the South West of France,- Midi Pyrénées area - 

It's name comes from the famous pilgrimage from all Europe to St Jacques de Compostelle. The symbol of this pilgrimùage is a scallop, shape that you find on the top of this cheess, and also the production area is very closed to one of the pilgrimage route to St Jacques de Compostelle.

So, obviously, this cheese name could be only Compostelle!

This little soft  goat cheese is creamy when it's fresh with a natural goat milk taste and dryer when the maturation get longer and it's taste becomes more goaty.

Of course, the Compostelle, is one of the cheese that you shoul have on your cheeseboard during the Easter season, for it's name; shape and taste.

The compostelle will marry with a dry white wine such as a Sancerre 'sauvignon grape)
