Product Description

One of our most traditional goat’s milk cheeses, Crottin de Maitre Seguin (Master Seguin’s Crottin) is one of the staple cheese-platter selections. Very similar to Crottin de Chavignol and Chabichou or Chabis, it is a delicate and sweet, with a soft, even texture – the cheese is uncooked and unpressed. The flavor is pungent, but not overpowering. Traditionally paired with a not-to-sweet but fruity white wine like a Sancerre.

Ingredients: Pasteurized goat’s milk, salt, lactic starters, animal rennet

Storage: refrigerated
In France, it was the monasteries that began the delicious tradition that is French cheese. The monks took great care and pride in their cheese, being meticulous in their creation.

A bit of experimentation ensued and so we have numerous varieties today. Through the years, the French people have refined the work of producing milk, extracting the curd and turning it into intense regional flavor meaning that it really is possible to be a French cheese expert.

French cheese has come to command an important reputation on the world stage, for example, brie may be produced anywhere, but a brie with the “Produce of France” stamp denotes a certain standard, thereby demanding a higher price.
