Briquette des Gors
If you can, try to imagine a goat's cheese that is so light and fluffy, each bite is like a whisper-soft cloud of melt in your mouth chantilly de chèvre.
No, I couldn't believe it either.
But I promise you, Briquette des Gors is pure cheese heaven.
This unpasteurized chèvre produced in the Deux-Sèvres department of the Poitou-Charentes will seduce absolutely anyone, even those who claim they can't stand the taste of goat's cheese.
Its flavor is very soft and gentle, with hints of fresh milk and mild salt, but not goaty at all. And the texture...so airy and mousse-like! Truly delightful.
Enjoy with a white wine from the Loire Valley.
