About this item
Roquefort Vieux Berger provides one of the more intense blue cheese tasting experiences. To us, it's an intense pleasure. For those unafraid of Le Roq, we salute you. Prepare yourselves for a wild ride: salty, slightly gritty, and grassy, followed by a surprising fruity finish. It's a cheese that should make contact with all regions of the tongue in order to fully appreciate its complexity.
Roquefort's distinctive flavor profile is in part due to its origin: sheep. And no average sheep either. These are the sheep of the Aveyron region that spend their days chomping on wildflowers and grasses. Next the milk is formed and laid to rest temporarily in damp caves under the town of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon, the cheese's namesake. There is beautiful work going on under this tiny village: the natural mold of the caves, Penicillium roqueforti, is penetrating the young cheeses and giving them their deep flavor and blue veining.
