Madrigal is a French full-fat semi-hard cow's milk cheese from the Loire valley in central France. This French Baby Swiss cheese is produced in the shape of a flattened ball in large, 5 or 12 kg wheels. It has a soft and smooth straw coloured paste with irregularly spaced holes/eyes. The taste is distinctively sweet and nutty, very similar to an Emmental or a Fol Epi. Madrigal pairs well with fruity red and white wines.
