St. Maure (Buche de Fontenay)
About this item
SOLD BY THE PIECE. Each piece is approx 4 oz.
Easily identified by its signature straw through the middle and ash-coated rind, Buche de Fontenay is a classic lightly aged chevre (goat cheese) from the Loire Valley region of France. These dramatic cheeses with a greyish rind and stark white interior come in various shapes and sizes, but are all consistently delicious. They feature a dense but soft interior, creating a fudgy thick mouthfeel of clean bright flavors, lemony tang, and a hint of grass.
The straw is inserted by function only: to use as a handle to turn the delicate cheeses as they age. When eating, remove the straw and taste a classic French beauty.
