While it is made from raw or pasteurized milk of goat, it is produced mainly in Loire Valley in middle France. This buttery and smooth cheese with little acidic flavor emerges drier, denser and with a fine grey-blue edible rind. 

Sainte Maure comes in variety of shapes such as small log with a stick running through its middle, pyramids, cylinders and discs. These are exported to the US. The Sainte Maure goes well with wines such as Sauvignon Blanc, Fumé Blanc, Sancerre and many white wines.
