Bleu de Termignon is a French blue cheese that is produced to very precise specifications.
It is made of the milk of the French alp-cows that graze 1,300 meter (4,265 feet) in the Rhône-Alpes region. Only four producers make this cheese in summer.
Did you know?
The irregular blueing is not the result of piercing, but of wild moulds entering through cracks of the rind. Read The Science of Cheese-making to learn more.
Bleu de Termignon Tasting Notes
Bleu de Termignon has a rough, crusty, brown-gold rind but beneath it is a dense and crumbly interior with a strong spicy, tang, and earthy, refined flavor.
How to Enjoy (PAIRING)
Pairing wine of the same region, such as Gigondas, Chignin Bergeron, and Vacqueyras, will be exactly how the French will pair with this cheese.
Alternatively, we find that the fruity cherry flavor of Merlot and Valpolicella goes extremely well with the robust flavor of this blue.
