Caprinelle is a very special cheese, rarely found outside of the region in which its made – Close to the Spanish border, it originates from one of France's most important goat breeding regions, the Pyrenees.

Caprinelle Tomme de Chevre has a semi-hard, dense (yet pliable) pâté that is a very pale yellow and has the aroma of goat’s milk and hay. The rind imparts a nutty character to the flavour nearer the rind, while the core is more traditional in its flavour with a slight nuance of salt and a lovely caramel finish on the palate. An overall concentrated flavour that is very well balanced, this cheese is perfect for the cheeseboard as well as a great melting cheese.
