Pouligny Saint Pierre

Often known as the “Pyramid” or the “Eiffel Tower” because of its truncated pyramidal shape, Pouligny Saint Pierre offers a very fine, dense and smooth texture. Despite its compact appearance it can sometimes be rather creamy too.




DPO's specifications of this cheese compel it to be moulded and then salted by hand, before being ripened for approximately ten days.

This cheese will be perfect with dry white wines from the Loire Valley, such as Rouilly or Pouilly-Fumé.

Pouligny Saint Pierre

Established in Châtillon-sur-Cher, at the edge of Sologne, La Fromagerie Hardy is specialised in the maturation of goat farmstead cheeses. It collects its cheeses from about 30 makers based in centre of France. Hardy works mostly with 3 PDO products (Sainte-Maure de Touraine, Valençay et Selles-sur-Cher), but recently spread its range of products to other goat cheeses of diverse shapes: Bonde, Cabri, Biquet, Pavé or Coeur.

Did you know that ?

As it is stipulated in the PDO requirements of Pouligny-Saint-Pierre, this cheese must have a truncated pyramidal shape. If the tip of pyramid is cute, it is because a pointy cheese would be much harder to handle and transport.
