Description:
Bleu des Basques' blue-gray veining is very fine, spreading evenly through a paste the color of butter. The texture of this gourmet cheese is semi-firm and creamy on the tongue; the flavor is full, nutty, buttery and faintly sweet. This is not a salty or pungent blue, but a well-balanced cheese with plenty of character and strength.
