Our version at 12 months has a concentrated flavour, mildly piquant with tiny hints of crunch for concentrated protein crystals. 

Jaq du Berry
Style: Ashed, Surface Ripened
Milk Type: Goat
Origin: Loire Valley, France

The Chabris region that lies to the south of the Loire Valley is famous for a varied range of Chevre, particularly those made in a distinguishing truncated pyramid shape.

The shape of the cheese is said to have originated when Napoleon cut off the top of a perfect pyramid shaped cheese with his sword after returning from a disastrous campaign in Egypt.

Made by master cheesemaker Monsieur Jacquin, the cheese is covered with salted, ground charcoal and cellared for 4 weeks. When mature, the cheese looks quite rustic with flecks of blue mould on the rind and a sweet, slightly acidic flavour and soft, moussey texture.
