This moist, creamy cheese has well-distributed greenish-blue veins and a very thin rind. The overall flavor is pungent, rich and full, with a light saltiness that increases with the occurrence of veining. As Bleu D’Auvergne ages, the crust becomes sticky, the interior gradually collapses, and the taste becomes more intense. The full-flavored characteristics of the cheese are at its optimum when served with sweet dessert wines such as Riesling and Port or strong, robust red wines. The cheese is often used in salad dressings, pastas and is a good cheese for snacking.
