Country: France
Region: Haut Poitou
Texture: Semi Firm Bloomy Rind
Type of Milk: Goat
Aging Time: 10 Days
Pasteurized: Typically unpasteurized although both versions are produced

Le Chevrot is goat's milk cheese that has a bright white pate with an off white, slightly wrinkled edible rind. Handmade near the province of Poitou, next to the Loire Valley, it has an inviting aroma, with a buttery taste and a fine moist texture.  As it gets older, the interior develops a flaky and creamy texture and the rind offsets a nuttier, rustic and full-bodied flavor.
