We classified Brousse du Rove as a rare cheese because:
- Rove goat is notorious for producing very little milk; most farmers bred Rove goat for its meat instead.
- Short shelf life of 8 days. It is safe to say that this cheese does not travel very far.
- Produced in very low quantity. The majority are sold within the farms or at nearby markets within the area.
Newly AOC 2020
After a difficult year in 2007, Brousse du Rove’s AOP has finally been approved in 2020.
How Brousse Du Rove is Produced
- Heating the milk (up to 90 degrees)
- Cooling between 70-75 degrees
- Add white vinegar diluted in water to act as an acidifier
- Collect all solids using a sieve
- Placed all solids into cone-shaped molds
Brousse Du Rove Texture
It has an immaculate and bright interior that feels moist and slightly sandy when touched.
Brousse Du Rove Tasting Note
Brousse du Rove is moist on the palate and reveals delicate notes of goat that, for a fresh cheese, provide a particularly long and refreshing mouthful.
How to Enjoy (PAIRING)
This cheese goes well with savory dishes like omelette, baked rice and French chicken casserole.
Nevertheless, it is best served as a dessert in our opinion. As a dessert, it goes well with berries, figs and/or honey.
