Selles Sur Cher
A goats cheese which was first made in the 19th Century.
The Selles sur Cher
was one of the first to be accepted as an AOC product, in 1975.
Shaped in a thick disc with bevelled sides. The more it is aged, the Selles sur Cher character becomes more pronounced and its nutty flavour is accentuated. When fresh it melts in ones mouth like icecream. The fine wood charcoal covering is subtly tainted blue. By contrast the paste of the Selles sur Cher is snow white with a downy rind that shows superficial moulding.
