About

Quercy is a stunning little ball of very lightly ripened goat cheese that is sure to be a crowd pleaser! Quercy is a farmhouse cheese produced by one family on their farm in the village of Montastruc la Conseillere, France. The small cheese is decorated with wild blackberry bush leaves.

Taste Notes

Quercy is a luxurious cheese, in sight, smell and taste! The natural rind is soft, white and mottled. Cut into the soft cheese to reveal a creamy white, smooth paste. The aroma is fresh, lactic and a bit sweet and foreshadows the complex flavours to come. The texture of the Quercy is silky smooth, perfect for spreading! The thick, chalky paste covers the tongue and leaves a delightful feeling on the palate. The flavours are fresh and exciting, a wonderful mix of milky and fresh, a bit of tartness as well as fruity flavours. Try your Quercy on crackers and bread, in a salad or on pasta!

Pairings

Quercy will pair well with many white wines. Choose your favourite fresh, fruity light white and enjoy the refreshing combination. Try a Sauvignon Blanc, where the zippy acidity of the wine will compliment the tangy acidity in the cheese.
