Fourme D Ambert

Fourme d'Ambert is one of France's oldest cheeses, dating from the Roman period. Its a lovely full flavoured Blue without the bite; some people say they detect a touch of anise in the taste .... others say they taste nuts and mushrooms ..... either way, this is the closest French cheese to a Stilton!

More about Fourme d`Ambert ...

its best enjoyed with a medium-bodied red wine such as the local Côtes-du-Forez, or with a Sauternes. At large gatherings little chimneys are dug into the cheese which are filled with eau-de-vie and enjoyed as some British enjoy their Stilton with port.

Known as the "connoisseur's blue cheese", Fourme d’Ambert is a capsule shaped cheese patched with grey/white moulds on a natural thin crust. Ambert is a town that faces west from the Mont du Forez and its joint AOC with sister cheese, Fourme du Montbrison, which faces east, was recently disolved in recognition of the importance of terroir in cheesemaking.

As with Roquefort, the penicillin is first introduced into the raw cow’s milk. Air is then injected into the pâté once the cheese has been made in order to help it develop later in the maturation process. The interior is creamy coloured with liberal greenish blue marbling which doesn't dominate the flavour, this cheese being one of the mildest of French blues. The texture is rich and mellow with a subtle aroma of roasted nuts and a fruity flavour making it a perfect partner for fine wines as the taste is not overly aggressive.
