Pointe de Bique - fresh goat's milk cheese - 8.8 oz/250 gr, France.
As a version of Pouligny-St.-Pierre, this tall pyramid of fresh goat cheese stands up to its predecessor admirably. When young it is yeasty, tangy with a fudgy, soft paste.
For the full effect, we recommend ripening these little treasures until they develop a rind. Once this rind is established, the alchemy will ensue. At its best, the cheese will have a silky, smooth layer under the rind with the smooth, dense paste making up the interior.
The flavor expands into earthier goat cheese aromas, with a slightly pungent tang at the finish.
