Mothais Sur Feuille is a French goat’s cheese originating in the Poitou-Charentes region of western France. It is named after the town of Mothe-Saint-Héray where the cheese has been made and sold since the 19th century. Fresh goat’s milk is used to prepare the cheese which is then matured in a room with unusually high humidity. During the maturity period, it is covered in a protective chestnut, sycamore, or plane leaf coating. Mothais a la Feuille has a soft, runny texture that becomes dense as it ages. The unique combination of earthy, lemony, and mold flavors of the leaf become intense as the cheese matures. On the surface, the rind of the cheese is delicate and wrinkled with blue and green mold underneath the leaf shell. It has been injected with a strain of Geotrichum that allows the cheese to breathe and develop the typical goat milk flavor. Mothais a la Feuille pairs well with Champagne or a single-malt whisky. In 2002, the cheese was awarded an AOC designation to protect the quality standards. 5oz
