Selles sur Cher 150g
This cheese originates from Sologne in Central France.
Made for the first time in the 19th century, this charcoal coated discs is named after the commune of Selles-sur-Cher in the Loir-et-Cher.
The cheese is made from goats’-milk and sold in small cylindrical units.
Tasting Notes: It tastes slightly salty. Aged to 4 weeks, the blue-grey rind becomes knobby and the moist, almost clay-like interior has a slight sweetness. Along with cheese, the mould is often eaten which has comparatively stronger flavour.
Pairing wine suggestions: This goat milk cheese will pair deliciously well with a light Cabernet Franc like a Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil . Interesting with a dry white from Loire such as Pouilly Fume.
