Raw cow’s milk with a sweet and nutty flavor. Semi-Firm: Le Chartreaux – Raw cow’s milk cheese with a pretty paste that turns yellow from ivory.

Fruity sweetness on the front followed by buttery overtones with a velvety mouthfeel and nutty finish. Blue: Blue D’Auvergne A.O.C. – Smooth and buttery, this beautifully marbled blue is milder than others in its category. Cave aged for 4 months.

La Tur From the wine region of Piemonte in Italy comes this dense, creamy blend of pasteurized cow, goat, and sheep, milk. Liquescent around its perimeter with a moist, cakey paste. Its flavor is earthy and full, with a lingering milky tang. $13.99/ea
Taleggio A semisoft, washed-rind, smear-ripened Italian cheese. The cheese has a thin crust and a strong aroma, but its flavor is comparatively mild with an unusual fruity tang and meaty nuances. $15.00/lb
Bearded Lady This bloomy, pasteurized, goat milk cheese is molded after the Spanish Monte Enebro. Bearded Lady boasts a super-clean, velvety goat’s milk paste, with a texture similar to that of a fresh ricotta – yielding a wonderful barnyard funk. $40.00/lb
Wine of the Week
K Vintners Viognier ’16
“A beautiful wine that’s very keenly priced, the 2016 Viognier Art DenHoed is very pretty, offering up notes of citrus blossom, musky peach and white cherries, with a subtle top note of leesy reduction. On the palate, it’s elegantly glossy, pure and limpid, with juicy acids and a mouthwateringly stony finish. Drink it over the next few years.”
