Description of cheese
With a characteristic cone shape, this goat cheese has the nickname, pyramid or Eiffel tower. The home of Pouligny Saint-Pierre is the Vallée de la Brenne in the county Centre. This area has the advantage of a good micro climate, providing mild winters, with influence from the ocean. The special flora of this area, with its cherry trees and heather, provide rich food for the local goats to graze on. This richness is evident in the cheese. It has a smooth goat's milk taste, a bit sour, and a nutty aroma.
