Cheese: Pouligny-Ste.-Pierre

Posted: June 26, 2000


Cheese: Pouligny-Ste.-Pierre
Region: France
Milk: Goat

This classic from Berry, France resembles a four-sided pyramid (nicknamed Tour Eiffel) and has different characteristics depending on its age: white exterior with moist and fragile paste when young, beige rind with blueing interior in its middle-age, and, when extra-aged, a dark beige crust covers extensive blue veins and a dry, hard interior. This refreshing herbal chèvre carries a goaty and sharp aroma.

Wine: Loire, Burgundy whites
