Quixart’s Pau is a Sant Mateu cheese, which means it is a pasteurized goat’s milk cheese of orange color due to the unique rind. His milk comes only from his own herd and the area’s natural flora comprises much of the goats’ diet and imparts a unique savory flavor to his cheese. He ages it 10-12 weeks when the cheese reaches its optimal flavor specifically for Rogers Collection. Made in the French washed rind style, Sant Mateu (Pau) is savory and meaty, full of aroma but versatile and easygoing in flavor.
