#19 - Salers, France

We purchased this cheese from the Fromagerie Beillevaire stall at the Challans market, although we do not know the name of the specific producer.  

A cows milk cheese.  We had a portion cut from a large round of the cheese.  The curd looks young and not well knitted, a bit like a Lancashire, but there was a well developed rind.  The texture was moist but slightly crumbly and also fatty.  The flavour was acidic, with savoury notes but we did not think was balanced overall.  There were slight lingering farmy and acid flavours.

Overall an interesting cheese to try, but not one that excited us.
