THE FINER DETAILS

Bleu des Basques

Seeded with Roquefort blue mould, the wheels, with a reddish-brown rind, are spiked after two months and then matured in humid curing rooms for at least a further 4 months. Small pockets of salty blue moulds form in the cheese as it slowly hardens, developing a nutty texture, and a slightly sweet floral aftertaste reminiscent of the pastures of the high Alps

ORIGIN: Basque Country, France

SUB CATEGORY: Blue

RECOMMENDED WINE PAIRING:

Regional Selections Moscato

An intense salty punch that needs to be tamed by a gently sparkling, honey-laden Moscato. The acidity brings out the intense fruit in the cheese, making this one of our strongest wine pairings.
