 Product Description

Société Roquefort has an ivory-colored paste with emerald-green veining and a creamy, moist texture. Its rich, intense sheep milk flavor balances the blue mold aroma creating the magic taste that has made Roquefort famous around the world and distinguished it by many as the King of Cheeses.

Born in an extraordinary location, Société Roquefort cheese is made with perfumed raw milk from an incredibly adaptable breed of ewes, Lacaunes. Each sheep gives 16 gallons of milk per season – much less than cows - making this milk rare and its cheese precious.

Century-old tradition and human dedication have made this cheese world famous and the French philosopher Diderot called Roquefort the "King of Cheeses“ during the Age of Enlightenment. Roquefort cheese is crafted with liquid Penicillium roqueforti found in the damp caves. Combined with the ewes milk and aged for a minimum of 90 days in the natural limestone caves of Roquefort and cellars, Roquefort is created.

Société Roquefort can be enjoyed in various ways: on its own, with bread, or accompanied by apples, dried fruits and walnuts, crumbled in a salad, melted in a gratin and so on. 

Perfect Pairings

One of the great Wine-Cheese Pairings is Roquefort and Sauternes. The combination of honeyed sweetness and salty tang is perfect. You might replace the Sauternes with a softer wine from the Loire, Bergerac or Jurançon regions or a California Sauvignon Blanc.
