Description

Sainte Maure is the king of Touraine goat cheese. It is a classic goat cheese originating from the Loire region of France and has been made there in the same way for over one thousand years. Sainte Maure is easily recognized because it has a long straw that traverses the middle.

Protected since 1990 by the AOC (Protected Designation of Origin), Sainte Maure de Touraine has a slightly salty taste and depending on the period of maturation the savour can be nutty.

It pairs well with Loire wines such as Chinon, Vouvray or Sancerre.
