Description: Saint Nectaire is a French semi-soft, washed rind cheese made in the Auvergne region of France. Made from the milk of Salers cows that feed on rich, volcanic pastures. This farmed cheese made with raw milk takes 6 to 8 weeks to mature on rye straw mats, imparting a peculiar pungent smell to the cheese. Properly aged, it has a grayish-purple washed rind, dotted with white, yellow and red molds. The creamy, supple, silky textured paste melts in the mouth to reveal flavours of nuts, hay, cellars and mushroom.
Weight: Approx. 200g/ piece
Wine Pairing: A glass of Bordeaux, Shiraz, Cotes d'Auvergne or Beaujolais and Saint Nectaire will go hand-in-hand
