The Roves des Garrigues
is named after the breed from which the milk is derived - the Rove - and the place where the animals graze - the Garrigues - in Provence. It is essentially a "fresh" goat milk cheese with a natural rind. The vegetation upon which the animals graze offers an immense amount of flavor for a younger fresh goat milk cheese. The flavor of thyme, laurel, fennel, lavender, citronella and other herbs of the Garrigues give accents to the flavor of this lovely little semi-soft cheese.
