Montbriac Rouchbaron

Montbriac or Rochebaron as its also known, is the result of a successful experiment that combined blue mould with a typically French soft, creamy cheese. The French are well-known for their ability to produce world class soft cheeses, and Roche Baron is no exception. Made by injecting their delicious soft-as-Brie cheese with the same mould that is used to produce Roquefort. Rich and sinfully creamy, this wonderful product is a fantastic example of the French love for fine cheeses.

More about Mont Briac/Rochbaron ... Montbriac is a modern creation, dating perhaps from the 1980s. The producer is the Fromagerie de l'Ance, in the village of Beauzac, a large dairy launched in 1979 that also makes the popular blue cheese Saint Agur.

Montbriac is a blue cheese, too, although the blue veining is minimal. Some describe it as a blue Brie, perhaps because it is round and only about an inch in height, with a creamy interior. But it is smaller than Brie, weighing a little over 1 kg, with a higher fat content and a more luscious texture. Some call it a double cream cheese, but it is not; it just that it tastes like one. Double-cream cheeses have a minimum fat content of 60 percent (that's in the dry matter, minus the water), and Montbriac can only claim 55 percent. Traditional Brie, by comparison, is 45 percent fat. 

The surface of Montbriac is coated with gray ash and quickly becomes splotched with powdery white mould. The wheels are matured for between two to four weeks, becoming runny when ripe. The interior is the colour of clotted cream, with scattered specks... you can't really call it veining, of blue mould. The aroma suggests mushroom, celery and garlic; the texture is supple, silky and smooth. The flavour is subtle, rather salty, with just enough blue-mould character to make it interesting.
