Soignon Sainte Maure White Soft Goat’s Milk Cheese is a surface-ripened goat cheese named for its birthplace, a tiny village in France’s Loire Valley’s Touraine area. The rye straw that runs through the heart of the soft and delicate cheese is perhaps its most distinctive feature. Soignon Sainte Maure has a firm, mottled blue-gray rind and is fashioned like an elongated tapering log. The edible rind contrasts beautifully with the cheese’s brilliant white core, resulting in a nutty, somewhat acidic flavor with citrus undertones.
This cheese’s taste is exceptionally well-balanced, with a lemony acidity tempered by a buttery nuttiness. It is recommended to eat this cheese straight-up, in a salad, or on a crusty baguette with fig jam. When it comes to wine pairings, this cheese goes well with a Loire Valley wine. You can also go for a zesty, mineral white wine that is citrus-y in the palate or a crisp sauvignon blanc.
Cheeses (except brined ones in jars) should be stored in the crisper or the butter drawer of a refrigerator, not on the shelves themselves. This is to help regulate their temperature and humidity levels—and prevents the formation of mold. Once opened, they should not be kept in their original packaging. Soft cheeses with delicate rinds need to breathe, so they are best placed in glass containers lined with paper towels to absorb extra moisture. Leave the lid open a tiny bit for air to circulate and don’t forget to write up a label with the date you first opened the package. Kindly pay attention to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Consume prior to date indicated.
