Bleu de Gex comes from the mountainous Jura region, near the Swiss border. It is also known as Bleu du Haut-Jura.
Bleu de Gex has a natural rind covered with powdery white and gray molds. The moist butter-colored interior will be liberally laced with blue-gray veins. The nose reveals a nutty aroma suggestive of roasted peanuts. The semi-soft texture is exceptionally creamy and has a rich flavour and silky, melt-in-the-mouth quality. Unlike some other blues, which can be fearsomely piquant, Bleu de Gex is mild and subtle. You couldn’t find a more appealing partner for autumn figs, apples and pears.
With Bleu de Gex, open a fortified dessert wine that is not syrupy sweet.

Paul C –
Rather a rubbery texture and a not very distinctive flavour. This is far from my favourite blue cheese.
