Bouton de Culotte, or ‘trouser buttons’, are small Mâconnais that are stored during the autumn for winter use.
By winter, the rind becomes dark brown and hard and this goat’s cheese can be grated into the local fromage fort.
It has a very distinct goaty taste that hints of ground nuts, feels dry in the mouth, and has a sharp, tongue-tingling finish.
How to Enjoy (PAIRING)
Enjoy the cheese with all the powerful full-bodied vintages of Mâconnais and Côte Chalonnaise.
