St Agur French Cheese is a blue cheese from the Auvergne region in central France. The area is renowned for its production of blue cheese which has been a local tradition for centuries. The region has contrasting seasons and features with hot summers following very cold winters and green-covered volcanic hills meeting basalt stone. The Saint Agur cheese wheel, from which the Saint Agur Wedge comes from, draws inspiration from this volcanic basalt stone and uses the same octagonal shape as a tribute to its home and origins.
St Agur French Cheese is a medium strong creamy blue cheese, made from cow’s milk in Auvergne. It is excellent with full bodied red wines, great on bread for a snack or in a salad. Hard to find and extremely likable. Could be used as a more delicate substitute for Gorgonzola in sauces when Dolcelatte is out of season or too strong. The cheese has a very strong and spicy taste when ripens.
There’s a reason Saint Agur is the UK’s favourite blue cheese brand. Rich, smooth and decidedly different, the cheese is both milder and less crumbly than traditional blue cheeses. Saint Agur boasts a punchy, tangy taste that is softened by a luxurious creaminess, providing a perfectly balanced bite.
