Gatinais, 130g

£ 7.95

Gatinais is a soft raw goat’s milk cheese with a bloomy rind. It is made by the Johnny Blanc’s Fromagerie which is located in Parthenay in Deux-Sèvres just west of Poitiers in North Western France. This  area is also famous for its honey production and a little on your Gatinais will give a delicious contrast to the piquancy of the tangy goat’s milk flavours.

The cheese itself is a small puck, natural or ashy, which is matured on a chestnut leaf. Its body is white and fine and has a slightly nutty flavour with herbaceous notes.

It can be enjoyed at different stages of maturity and makes a great addition to any cheese board. Serve with warm bread or crackers and the usual accompaniments.

Cheese and Wine Pairing
Enjoy Gatinais with a light white unoaked wine such as our refreshing Mytilus Albariño from Northern West Spain. Another great choice would be our fantastic Sauvignon Blanc from Mount Brown in New Zealand. Cheers and Bon appétit!
