Coeur De Neufchâtel
Though similar in looks to a Camembert, Neufchâtel has a saltier taste and sharper finish. It is richer in taste, but coarser and grainy in texture.
The Marais Vendéen lies between the Loire River and Noirmoutier Island. The wild grasslands have enchanted many farmer over the years, who ended up deciding to settle there and dedicate themselves to farming and cheese making in the area. This was the case for Pascal Beillevaire, who was born and raised on his parents' dairy farm in the Marais Vendéen.
Here he dreamed of blending two of his passions: trade and agriculture. He started by selling cream, butter, and other dairy products in the local markets in the surrounding areas. After many years of hard work and dedication he had transformed the family dairy farm into Beillevaire dairy – a cheese maker, affineur and distributor.
Coeur de Neufchâtel cheese has the aroma and taste of earthy mushrooms, whilst retaining a very creamy consistency, occasionally with a yeasty undertone, depending on age.
