Buchette de Chevre is an exquisite soft-ripened cheese made from goat's milk and produced in the Centre region in the Loire Valley of central France. A log-shaped chevre cheese, it is ripened for a minimum 7 days rendering the exterior a crusty and hard edible rind with a classic, bloomy mold.
The white pate of Buche de Chevre reveals a complex yet typical, bold taste of French goat cheeses underlined by sweet notes of caramel. Soft and creamy with a flaky centre, the cheese instantly melts in the mouth.
Buchette de Chevre can be served warm on salads or with fruits for dessert. It could also be used as a dressing for quiches and canapés. Its delightful blend of flavour and texture goes well with a Beaujolais or red wine.
Fromagerie Jacquin was founded in 1947 and is based between the Touraine, Berry and Sologne regions of France in the Loire Valley. For over 65 years and four generations, the Jacquin family has specialized in making and aging the region’s traditional PDO goat cheeses: Selles sur Cher, Sainte Maure de Touraine, Valençay, Pouligny Saint Pierre and Crottin de Chavignol.
