Livradois Saint Nectaire Cheese

Saint Nectaire is an ancient French gourmet cheese with a natural rind, made in the beautiful mountains of the Auvergne region. This is a raw milk cheese in France, but in order to sell it in the USA, the French creamery makes a pasteurized version of mostly Salers cows.

Cheesemonger's Note: Saint Nectaire's rind can be dry or slightly sticky, and pungent, with spots of white or grey mold. This is normal. After extensive testing we recently changed our cheese wrapping method. You'll see some loose air inside the vacuum-seal: this is intentional and what the cheese likes best. We hope you'll notice improved flavor and shelf life on this delicate cheese.

Saint Nectaire is an ancient French gourmet cheese with a natural rind, made in the beautiful mountains of the Auvergne region. This is a raw milk cheese in France, but in order to sell it in the USA, the French creamery makes a pasteurized version of mostly Salers cows. The cheese is made in round flat discs. It has a grayish rind with light yellow or reddish patches. The supple paste is pale gold in color and becomes almost runny as it matures. It has a really earthy aroma. The paste alone has a sweet and grassy aroma and this is repeated in the flavor which is only slightly farmyard like. The cheese is semi-soft, supple, with a milky smell and a mild flavor. Saint Nectaire is really a delicious cheese that is worth savoring with a glass of red wine. It has a rich and perfumed flavor, derived from the pastures the Auvergne mountains.
