The Full Wheel
It would be fruitless to contest such a lofty (and well-deserved) title as “The King of Blue Cheeses.” And, as Roquefort secured its market share on blues about a millennium ago, a perhaps hopeless argument anyway – in 1070 the first mention of Roquefort appears in the Carolingian texts. From then on, the history of Roquefort remains closely related to Roquefort-sur-Soulzon and the Combalou mountains. King Charles VI (15th century) granted exclusive production rights to the inhabitants of Roquefort, making the caves 'protected' (an important ‘First’ for France – In 1925, Roquefort became the first recognised Appellation d'Origine, or A.O.C., cheese). In 1872, Guilhaume Coulet built a wine cellar that later was turned into a cheese aging cave, and today, five generations later, the company is still family-run. Limestone native to the area affects native grasses and wildflowers in the sheep's diet, contributing to a flavor profile that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. Loaves of Rye bread are placed in the aging caves, which encourage Penicillium Roqueforti – bestowing the cheese with its distinctive flavor and brilliant blue-green marbling. Rich, high butterfat raw milk yields a creamy, snow white paste, and a perfectly balanced sweet-meets-salty flavor profile. This cheese has won literally too many awards to count!
