Pouligny-Saint-Pierre

Traditional, creamery, unpasteurised, natural-rind cheese made from goat's milk. It has a shape of pyramid with soft, wrinkled, ivory-coloured, natural rind. When this dries out, the wrinkles deepen and gray, white and blue moulds gather. It is named after the eponymous village. The rind is soft and ivory-coloured when the cheese is young. As it ages and dries, the rind becomes reddish-orange, providing a magnificent contrast to the firm, pure white, slightly grainy interior. Tasting reveals a complexity of flavours, including herbaceous plants and white wine and a texture that is both creamy and nutty.
