Pouligny St Pierre fermier
The name of the cheese Pouligny-Saint-Pierre comes from the town of Indre, near which was installed the first collector of cheese farmers and where it has established its workshop. PDO since 1972.
Traditional, creamery, unpasteurised, natural-rind cheese made from goat’s milk. It has a shape of pyramid with soft, wrinkled, ivory-coloured, natural rind. When this dries out, the wrinkles deepen and gray, white and blue moulds gather. It is named after the eponymous village. The rind is soft and ivory-coloured when the cheese is young. As it ages and dries, the rind becomes reddish-orange, providing a magnificent contrast to the firm, pure white, slightly grainy interior. Tasting reveals a complexity of flavours, including herbaceous plants and white wine and a texture that is both creamy and nutty.
