This superb artisan blue cheese has a clean, forceful flavour with strong saltiness and melt-in-the-mouth feel. It has a moist, soft, ivory and blue pate with a crumbly texture. Granted its PDO Status in 1925, it is a timeless classic and a winner on any cheese board.
La Pastourelle co-operative is working closely with local dairies and the result is this great artisan Roquefort cheese. Roquefort can only be classed as such if it has been ripened for 6 months in the natural caves of Mont Combalou in the commune of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon. Perfectly accompanied by a glass of sweet Sauternes.
