Bleu d’Auvergne

£5.40 Per 200g

This semi-soft, smooth-textured cheese has a strong, full-bodied taste and aroma, although it doesn’t possess a pungent taste.

Bleu d’Auvergne is a creamy, buttery, salty cheese with that characteristic ‘tang’.

Its bloomy rind adds a certain herbaceous flavour, that certainly hits the spot.

Quote from the Cheesemonger:

“It melts on the tongue with just the right amount of salty and spice creeping through. Definitely needs a Ruby Port to wash it down with.” – Harry B.

Description

Bleu d’Auvergne comes from the Puy de Dome region of Auvergne, France, where they say its flavour comes from the “wild nature” within the area. The chain of volcanoes’ previous destruction meant that there is incredibly abundant and varied flora and fauna popoulation. This means that the cows have a truly rich diet, which in turn leads to delicious milk. The Auvergne dairies keep to the years old tradition of producing the cheese, and what a result that tradition yields…

Bleu d’Auvergne is best served alone with sweet white wines, such as Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Or even a strong, robust red wine like a Shiraz or Nebbiolo. This cheese is also often used in blue cheese salad dressings, and pasta sauces.
