Made in the Vendée region of the Loire Valley, this is a goat's milk cheese made in the style of a Morbier cheese from the Jura region.

The cheese is made by filling a form with one batch of curds, topping the curds with ash, and then covering this with a second batch of curds. The goat's milk creates a whiter paste that gives the ash line in the cheese a bluish hue, hence the name Sillon Bleu, that roughly translates to "blue path". Rather than the thin, dark line of ash in Morbier, this line wanders throughout the cheese to create a beautiful effect reminiscent of Carrara marble.

As the cheese ages, it is given a periodic wash with a brine and annatto solution to give it a clean, orange-colored rind, that creates a pungent aroma and adds to the striking profile to the cheese. 

This cheese comes to us from Master Affineur Rodolphe Le Meunier, who is based in Tours. He also sells this cheese under the name Jeune Autize.
