pouligny st pierre cheese emergency (Paris shopping help)

Melanie Wong | Mar 24, 2012 07:09 AM

Sadly I type this on my phone from the back of a taxi headed to Paris. After checking out of the gite this morning, our rental car broke down on the way to Beaune for cheese shopping. The rental company towed our car and arranged cab for us. But the Marché was packing up and Alain Hess was closed for lunch by the time we finally arrived. We'd been buying all week at Hess and I had a long list of things to have packed for travel today. My plan to stop in Saulieu at the fromagerie has also gone up in smoke.

I'd had a special request to bring back the pouligny st pierre that Hess sells. Where can I find it in Paris? For that matter, Gaugrey's raw milk Epoisses that I'm told is not easy to find outside the region. Other things on my lists are Cendre, Ami du Chambertin, Plaisir du Chablis, Chevreton de Macon, Tomme de brebis bourgogne, delices de Pommard, and Soumantrains. I have Sunday and Monday to shop though I understand these are common days to close.

Last week I did visit Jouannault, but it does not have Gaugrey. Its close to the apartment and I can get there tonight before it closes, with any luck.

Ideas? Thanks in advance.
