Made in the Hautes Alpes, with cow’s milk from the Abondance, Tarine or Montbéliarde breeds in the traditional way, Bleu du Queyras is a blue-veined cheese bearing the name from the nearby massif. The milk comes from around thirty hamlets around the medieval town of Rochebrune and is matured in the cellars of the old town.
When young, Bleu du Queyras is smooth and light in the mouth. It gets a powerful caracter and a nice milky and spicy tendency when aged. The texture is friable and firm with a yellow paste and well distibuted blue veins.
Although Bleu du Queyras does not have earn its AOP appellation yet, the producers have recently submitted the application, and we sincerely hope this stunning blue will get it soon!
