A little history
With a registered designation of origin (AOC) obtained in 1979 and a protected designation of origin (AOP) acquired in 2009, this cheese could be thought of as the cow’s milk version of Roquefort. It is made all over the Causses region, but the maturation area is much more limited. Bleu des Causses is matured for at least seventy days in cellars dug into the limestone scree of Les Grands Causses.
