Bleu de Moncenis Cheese

Luigi Guffanti 1876

Its origins lie in the high Val di Susa on the French border - an alpine pasture version produced in small numbers.  The French influence is revealed in the name ‘blue’ which recalls the ‘bleu’ from the other side of the Alps.

This artisan made cheese has a compact, yellow paste with moderately widespread bluish marbling. It's strong and intense in taste and has well marked traces of penicillin.
