Visually reminiscent of the limestone cliff sides in which it is aged, Roquefort illustrates French artisanry like few others. A favourite among kings and popes, this classic blue mould cheese is made from sheep’s milk and is easily recognised by its blue veins stretching across its moist and crumbly body. It is creamy and aromatic, complex and intense, with sharp and tangy nuances.
While the unique characteristics of Roquefort are largely imparted from aging in caves near Toulouse in the southern part of France, the milk of the Lacaune sheep also plays a large role in the outcome of flavours. Grazing on pastures in Occitanie, the sheep are known to produce milk of sturdy character, rounded flavours and a high yield.
Pair Roquefort with honey and zesty apples. The salty profile of Roquefort also sits in perfect tune with meat.
