Le Marquis Chevre De La Foret

Chevres are quite often a polarising cheese. You either love them or your don’t. This cheese has lost much of its ‘goatiness’ as it ages. It still retains some of its tanginess that pairs so well with more acidic wines such as a Sav Blanc. This cheese has been created using modern techniques and the thin rind has specially selected and slow-growing moulds and bacteria. It’s soft feel will surely pleasure all.

Although goats milk cheese can be so amazingly rich, creamy, silky and luscious, it also has some advantages over its bovine counterpart. Goat cheese has about 60% of the fat, cholesterol and calories of cow’s milk.  They are a grazing animal which means they eat many different plant types, all of which influence the flavour of the milk. Regional differences are more noticeable that come through in the cheese. Chevre contains less lactose and a different protein structure allowing people who are allergic to cow milk, to eat the wonder that is Chevre.
