A white goat cheese, with a creamy texture and mild tangy flavor, which is made into a log shape and covered with salted ash. Typically made with a very thin rind, Montrachet or Montrachet Chèvre as it also known, is aged wrapped in vine or chestnut leaves. The best flavor is provided when the cheese is still fairly young, considered to be or labeled as a fresh milk cheese. As this cheese ages it may become somewhat bitter and watery. Montrachet is best served as a table cheese or as an appetizer with small crackers or hard breads.
