A pyramid shaped goats' cheese from the Loire Valley. It has a smooth, crumbly texture that mixes an initial citrus taste with salty and sweet overtones and a musty fragrance reminiscent of hay. Its pretty wrinkly rind and pleasing pyramid shape make it a must try for goat's cheese lovers.
Pouligny Saint Pierre is an archetypal French goats' milk cheese from the Loire Valley. Nicknamed the Eiffel Tower or Pyramid because of its shape. The natural rind becomes more mottled and delicately wrinkled with age protecting the startling white paste within. A young cheese is matured up to five weeks but can be aged for longer, developing stronger and more complex flavours.
