Valençay is one of the classic raw milk mold-ripened chèvres from the Loire Valley in the central western region of France. This pasteurized version of young goat milk cheese is distinctly identified by its pyramid form which is blanketed by an ash mold. After ripening in the caves at Artisanal, the texture is smooth and dense with a mild, lemony, and altogether clean flavor. Each cheese is about 9-10 ounces.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
