Chestnut Napoleon Cheese

This lovely little package of goat’s milk goodness starts off identical to our classic Little Napoleon, but as soon as the cheese starts to develop a rind, we wrap it in chestnut leaves that have been soaked in a mix of Michigan red wines. Aside from making a beautiful presentation, the leaves alter the taste and texture of the round, giving it an amazing complex density and a tangy finish. The Chestnut Napoleon makes an excellent table cheese and pairs wonderfully with all sorts of breads, flatbreads, and crackers. We like it with a subtle, less hoppy ale or any kind of sparkling wine.
