Saint Agur is a blue cheese from the village of Beauzac in the Monts du Velay, part of the mountainous Auvergne region of central France.
Saint Agur is a unique combination of smooth, creamy texture with salty and tangy taste, though not as salty as traditional blue cheese. It is more rich and buttery with a subtle spicy taste.
The cheese is suitable for vegetarians, as vegetarian-based rennet is added. The cheese develops a stronger and spicier taste as it ages. Saint Agur comes in various sizes and consistencies to meet all desires. It has no rind, but comes packed in a protective tub or portion packaging for public catering.
NOTE: This cheese is generally available all year from the tasting room and via our web site shop and comes individually wrapped in 12 oz. wedges. Shipping with ice packs is via 2nd-day air and is a flat $20 charge for any three cheese wedges shipped together.
Due to its double-cream nature, this cheese is easily spread and also melts well. Saint Agur is a cheese to discover with a dreamy texture that works well with fresh fruit.
From Our Artisans to You
Developed in 1988 it is made from pasteurized cow's milk, enriched with cream, and contains 60% butterfat qualifying it as a double-cream cheese.
Aged for 60 days in cellars, the cheese becomes stronger and spicier as it ages.
The moist, rich, white cheese has characteristic olive green mold veins throughout and a smooth, creamy texture with a subtle mild spicy taste resembling a softer, and finer Roquefort in presentation and taste.
It is not as salty as more traditional blue cheese, and its tangy and creamy nature are balanced so not to overpower with a sharp bite, although this is dependent in the age of the cheese.
