Couronne Lochoise

This little farmer’s cheese, with its original form and tender soft heart, is made in the region around Loches in the Loire Valley. The Couronne Lochoise is like the moto of the region : “douceur de vivre” The cheese has a generous flavour of the rich pasture lands of the Touraine. If allowed to mature to its peak of perfection the cheese will have the texture and taste of buttered pastry. The Couronne Lochoise has a creamy texture.
