La Fête du Fromage - La Couronne des 3 Seigneurs
The sweet, fresh flavor of La Couronne des 3 Seigneurs perfectly embodies the mountains of the Ariège Pyrénées, where this goat's cheese is produced.
There is nothing complex about about this delicate fromage férmier, all around it is very easy on the senses. There is almost no aroma, the texture is soft and fine and it has pleasant flavors of fresh milk, mellow citrus and a hint of salt. Yet for such a mild cheese, we thought it was fantastic!
La Couronne des 3 Seigneurs is perfect for those who enjoy French cheese that isn't too strong, yet is still full of flavor. We thought it was especially good with a drizzle of acacia honey and some pain aux noix.
A glass of light rosé would be a good match. Its flavor is light and fresh, so avoid heavy wine.
