Bleu de Laqueuille

$14.60

The small charming village of Laqueuille in Auvergne is home to a statue of Antoine Roussel, the son of a local farmer, who in 1850 created this delightful blue. It is made mostly during the French summer and autumn months from pasteurised cow milk. This elegant blue develops a dry, grey, natural rind and a creamy white interior with an even dispersion of blue-green mould throughout. When young the texture is soft and smooth, while the flavour is fresh and creamy with a slightly salty, spicy blue tang. With longer maturation the texture becomes a little crumbly and the flavour will intensify.
