Mothais a la 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. In 2002, the cheese was awarded an AOC designation to protect the quality standards.
Fresh goat’s milk is used to prepare the cheese which is then matured in room with unusually high humidity. During the maturity period, it is covered in a protective chestnut, sycamore or plane leaf coating.
