Roquefort Papillon - Black Label

This classic Roquefort Papillon Black Label is complex, creamy, and soft thanks to its maturing process. It is distinguished by its white curd and intense blue that generously marbles it throughout. Robust and rich, with a spicy, lingering finish.

Roquefort is one of the oldest French cheeses and is AOC protected, meaning that traditional methods and ingredients must be used during production. For example, it must be made exclusively from the milk of Lacaune ewes that graze on the huge plateau in Aveyron and then matured for a minimum of 4 months in the natural Combalou caves of the village.

Serve this superb cheese as a delicacy accompanied by a generous slice of rye bread and a medium-bodied red. You can also add it as a prominent feature on any cheese platter. Roquefort and Sauternes is a classic pairing, as the rich, honey, fruit flavors of peaches and apricots of the wine combine well with the salty, tangy flavors of the cheese.

Roquefort Papillon Black Label is only one in Papillon’s impressive range of cheeses. The Papillon brand was created 1906, and the Roquefort Papillon caves saw birth of the first Papillon Roquefort more than a century ago. Papillon like to do things a little different and always push the boundaries: Roquefort AOC demands that the cheese is matured for 14 days in the cave, but Papillon matures their cheeses for 20 days to ensure thorough development of the blue mold.
