Shaped like a truncated pyramid it is said that when Napoleon stopped in the town of Valencay after a bad campaign in Eygpt, the sight of the cheese shaped as a pyramid angered him so much so, he cut the top off. Spoiled brat!Mignucci
A truncated Pyramid of Chevre that comes to us from the renowned Loire Valley of central France. The legend says that Napoleon cut the top off of the once-pyramid shaped Valencay after his disastrous Egyptian Campaign. Valencay has a flavor distinctly reminiscent of citrus along with a slight mineral quality. The cheese is dusted in a light covering of ash to attract molds which then ripen the cheese. This cheese pairs best with a floral honey and a light white wine.
Wrapped with Fromagex, a double-layered wax-style wrap perfect for ensuring soft cheeses retain their integrity from our door to yours.
