 SELLES SUR CHER
Description:
This cheese, by reputation, is extremely old. Over many generations Selles-sur-Cher has maintained its original artisan method of production. This cheese was one of the first to be accepted as an AOC product, in 1975. Its form is in the shape of a thick disc with bevelled sides.
This delicious taste is reminiscent of the gentle valleys life of the Loire and the Cher.
Texture:
The fine wood charcoal covering is subtly tainted blue. By contrast its pate is snow white with a downy rind that shows superficial moulding.
Taste:
The more it is aged, the Selles-sur-Cher character becomes more pronounced and its nutty flavour is accentuated. At the first taste the cheese is faintly heavy and elastic; this is followed by a softening as it melts in ones mouth.
