Produced in the Auvergne region, Fourme d'Ambert is one of France's oldest cheeses, dating back to the Roman occupation nearly 1,000 years ago. It is said that the Druids and the Gauls developed the art of making this unique cheese. Milk from cows grazing on mountain pastures is used to produce its unusually tall cylindrical shape. It matures in 40 days when it is inoculated with Penicillium roqueforti to create blue veins and injected with Vouvray moelleux, a sweet white wine. The pâté is cream colored with prominent blue veining. Slightly tangy, savory flavor infused by the bacteria, beautifully complements the distinct notes of butter and cream. 7oz
