ROVE DES GARRIGUES

PROVENCE

PASTEURISED

TRADITIONAL RENNET

A fresh, rindless cheese from southwest France. This is a wild and beautiful arid area, with scrubby grasslands of wild thyme, gorse and dense woodlands of Chestnut trees. The goats – of the rare Rove breed, which produces dense, fudgy curds – are allowed to roam, and therefore eat plenty of herbs and chestnuts, imbuing the milk with its definitive herbal bosky flavour. The early spring cheeses are fresh and tangy and lemony, as the season progresses the flavours become more full, growing almost peppery.
