SAINT AGUR BLUE
Saint Agur is made in the Velay Mountains in the Haute-Loire region of France. Master cheesemakers worked for several years on the manufacturing and ageing process to perfect this famous cheese for all lovers of veined blues. The strictly-controlled temperature and moisture level in the maturation rooms are what give Saint Agur its distinctive, sharp, fruity, yet mellow taste and creamy texture.
Nearly three months are needed for Saint Agur to become melting and leave the cellars of Beauzac.
The cheese was originally created for the cheese counter. This where it proved highly successful, Saint Agur quickly became available on self-service shelves, then in portions and as Crème de Saint Agur: a smooth, creamy texture, rich with slivers of blue and ideal for spreading or in any number of hot dishes. The latest addition to the range, Frais Plaisir de Saint Agur combines the distinctive taste of the original with a fresh flavour and extra creamy texture.
