A small flat disc made of goat's milk from Berry and Perigord in France, Crottins are available young to aged, from creamy mild to dry and chalky with an edible natural rind, they are excellent with dry white wines and rhones. Very tasty little Chevres. 'Crottin' translates to 'little dropping'. Un petit sense of humor on the farm that day. The cheese matures from two weeks to two months and has a fat content of 45 per cent.
