Roquefort is undoubtedly one of the best known blue cheeses in the world! An incredible raw ewes milk cheese, it possesses a perfect texture, ivory colour and creamy paste. It is slightly salty on the palette with a mild acidity. Characterised by a deep white mould rind, a typical sheep aroma and a superb lingering finish on the palate.
