12 Days of Cheesemas–Day 11

Ahh, the Clochette.  If ever there was a cheese that was perfectly dressed for a cheese plate, it is the “little bell.”  With a white, slightly wrinkly rind, this young French goat’s milk cheese is mild and creamy, without much of the barnyard carrying over to the milk. But, because of transport time, we tend to get older, and more wrinkly, Clochettes in the states. This aging can make for a slightly more intense flavor, but takes absolutely nothing away from the sheer beauty of this cheese.
