Country of Origin: Jura, France Style: Semi-Hard Milk: Cow, Unpasteurised Wine Match: Beaujolais, Burgundy
Notes: Bleu de Gex is a blue cheese made from the unpasteurised milk of two cow breeds. It has pale blue/green moldy veins dispersed throughout its soft, white/ivory colored body with a creamy, crumbly texture. Its smell is intense and earthy, and it has a characteristically mild, acidic, nutty and buttery taste because it is, after all, one of the mildest French cheeses. Slightly spicy, peppery notes come from the blue veins.
