Petit BasqueAn approachable sheep's milk cheese with succulent notes of caramel and stone fruit. 5.5 oz
Sometimes described as the French cousin of English Farmhouse Cheddar, Cantalet is a semi-hard cow's milk cheese that displays fresh buttery flavors when young then deepens into a sharp, earthy expression of its native Auvergne region as it matures. The paste is dense, rich, and creamy with a slight crumble that increases with age, while the rustic rind brings to mind the long history of the style, dating back 2,000 years to the time of the Gauls and coming to prominence at the table of Louis XIV. This is truly a heritage cheese worth savoring.
Cantalet Dore complements a vast variety of reds, but for an off-the-path experience open a bottle of gold-toned Gewurztraminer and enjoy the interplay of sweet, aromatic wine with the umami-edged Cantalet.
La Cigogne Elderflower Tomme
La Cigogne (translation: "The Stork") is a unique semi-hard cow's milk tomme seemingly plucked straight from one of the pastoral meadows of its native Alsace. Sunny and lean like a traditional tomme, yet surprisingly creamy, La Cigogne lingers on the palate with delicate milk and a light vanilla sweetness. There is also -- quite literally -- a bouquet of floral notes to be discerned in the ivory-toned paste as the cheese is infused with the lacy elderflower blossoms that can be seen blooming on the hills of Alsace every spring. Four months of aging seasons the cheese and integrates the flavor of the blossoms beautifully.
Restrain La Cigogne with a dry Alsatian Riesling -- try Heimbourg or Clos Windsbuhl -- or bring its vanilla and honey spice to the forefront with an unfiltered farmhouse ale.
MontChevre Truffle Log
Creamy, unctuous, and bracingly tart with capric acid, goat's milk cheese is truly a force to be reckoned with. Artisan maker MontChevre has perfected a balanced, approachable example of the style. Their milk is collected from local herds then slowly drained and folded for a smooth cheese with real depth. Here they've added another layer to their usual flavor profile; this tender cheese is flecked with truffle shavings, infusing it with an indelible umami presence and creating a savory, rich take on chevre.
When it comes to matching goat's milk, there really is no substitute for a good Sancerre; the sprightly acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc grape cleanses and preps the palate for another bite without overpowering the tartness of the cheese. Go for a bottle of Lucien Crochet or Gerard Boulay.
Though it may share a herringbone-patterned rind and an area of origin with the better known Manchego, Petit Basque is a sheep's milk beauty entirely its own. Succulent and creamy with a smooth, inviting paste, Petit Basque is less gamey and more approachable than many of its more "sheepy" brethren. Which is not to say it's simple; roasted nuts, stone fruit, and a subtle note of caramelized creme brulee shell all offer themselves to the attentive palate in a robust slice of this refreshingly young cheese from the Pyrenees.
Match an agreeable wedge of Petit Basque with an equally generous bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau for an exuberant and immediate fruit forward pairing, perfect for an early evening cheese course or a late summer picnic.
