Product Description

A tall cylindrical cow’s milk cheese made in the twin towns of Ambert and Montbrison. The cheese is often featured in the original stained glass windows of the local churches and local legend claims it was the forbear of the Stilton recipe introduced to the Midlands of England at the time of the Norman invasion.

Easily recognisable by its shape which gently concertinas as the cheese matures in old railway tunnels that run through the heart of the mountain in the Auvergne. The natural humidity and cool tunnel air allow a natural blue-grey rind to develop and inside the texture is quite soft but dense and sticky with erratic marbled blue veining. Mild and creamy in flavour with a long blue finish.
