Bleu des Causses AOC is a full-flavoured, creamy blue cheese, with a lingering finish and a rich, salty tang. Often referred to as the cow’s milk version of Roquefort, the cheeses are allowed to mature in Gorges du Tarn’s natural limestone caves for 3 – 6 months to promote good blueing, aroma, flavour, and to develop a thin grey natural rind.

Bleu des Causses AOC is similar to Blue d’Auvergne, but is firmer, creamier in texture and has a spicier flavour. Depending on the time of the year it is made the colour, texture and flavours can vary. Cheeses made in winter tend to be lighter in colour and drier than cheeses made in the summer months.

The cheese is made north of Mauriac in the volcanic Auvergne region of France. Moist and creamy, with not too much sharpness – it is delicious spread on crusty bread, baked in a savoury tart, and enjoyed with a young, fruity red wine.

Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
