Weight: 200

Maturation: 2 months

Cheese Type: Uncooked, Unpressed cheese with blue mould

Bleu de Gex, or Bleu du Haut-Jura, comes from the mountainous Jura region, near the Swiss border.

Bleu de Gex has a natural rind covered with powdery white and gray molds. The moist butter-coloured 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.

Can be stored for up to 3-4 weeks in the fridge in its packaging.

  1. Nicolas Guyon

    Bleu de Gex is okay. The texture is nice and creamy, but the flavor is somewhat bland compared to other blue cheeses.

    Mild

  3. Paul C

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