Roquefort Papillon 1/2
In the south of France, a village of Aveyron gave its name to this cheese: Roquefort-sur-Soulzon. It's within this unique framework that all AOP Roquefort is made. This exceptional Roquefort Papillon is characterised initially by its white paste and the generous streaks of intense blue in its broad and numerous cavities. In the mouth, its rich and flexible texture develops a delicious fondant accompanied by a typical balanced and long-lasting taste. The Taste Noir range is the summit of an art to be found at Roquefort cheesemongers.
Papillon Roquefort can be served as a delicacy accompanied by a good slice of rye bread and a glass of wine such as sweet red wines or Sauternes, but it can equally add a sublime touch to some of your other dishes. Roquefort is an invaluable ally in the kitchen, a guarantee of subtle and delicate savours.
