Roquefort A.O.P.

Roquefort cheese is salty, tangy, and sharp and has become widely available over the years. But our Roquefort A.O.P. by Roldophe Le Meunier is the Park Place of Roquefort. It’s masterfully orchestrated with the best ingredients you can expect from a world renown cheesemaker. Every bite is full of crumbly texture and tingly tastes that with delight the palate.

Known throughout France as the “King of Cheeses,” Roquefort has a geologic history that dates back a million years ago. Volcanic eruptions formed the mountains and caves near the town of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon. The caves are important as their environment is the perfect breeding for Penicillium Roqueforti. The mold is the key component for the King of Cheeses and a requirement for A.O.P. (Appellation d’Origine Protégée or Protected Designation of Origin) status.

Regionally, the French use Roquefort in a variety of sauces, tarts, and quiches, but Americans typically spread it over bread or crackers. Our Roquefort is perfect as part of your next cheese or charcuterie board as the featured cheese. It is, after all, the King of Cheeses. Be sure and let it sit to room temperature before enjoying. Pair Roquefort A.O.P. with sweeter wines like Riesling or Rosé. Beer drinkers can pair it with nutty brown ales.

World famous French cheesemaker Roldolphe Le Meunier operates in the Loire Valley of France. He has dedicated his life to the craft of cheesemaking. Ever year Rodolphe creates cheeses with the finest textures, tastes, and aromas in the world. He ages each cheese with care and is mindful of both temperature in humidity. Every wheel is full of love for the art of cheesemaking.
