Buche De Touraine

buche_de_turaine

Buche de Touraine is one of the several French cheeses coming from master affineur Rodolphe Le Meunier. Modeled after the classic Saint Maure de Touraine, a traditional cheese from France’s Loire Valley, the Buche is log-shaped goat cheese made with pasteurized milk. The small forms are coated with vegetable ash for the classic appearance. After a 1-month aging period Buche de Touraine gets a bloomy geotrichum rind. The longer the period of aging, the drier the paste of the cheese becomes. Rodolphe Le Meunier is a renowned French affineur awarded with the MOF, Meilleur Ouvrier de France. This esteemed award is only given to craftsmen at the top of their field. The cheeses from Le Meunier certainly prove him worth of the medal! Organoleptic characteristics Aspect and texture: ash ripened, geotrichum rind. Ash develops a bluish-gray coloring. Paste is stark white with a chalky texture in the center but developing a creamier paste closest to the rind. Flavors: bright and lactic. Serving suggestions Pairs nicely with dry sparkling wines as well as a crisp rose as well as fresh apples or vegetrable crudites.
