Sainte Maure is formed into a small log no more than 17cm long. Traditionally, a piece of straw is placed in the middle of the cheese roll to keep it intact while a white mould is used to produce a bluish-grey edible rind.
The cheese has a smooth and soft texture with a buttery and slightly acidic flavour.
