REGALIS

MONTRÉJEAU, MIDI-PYRÉNÉES

THERMISED

TRADITIONAL RENNET

Dominique Bouchait's daughter worked with us for a while and introduced us to her father's cheeses – first Napoleon, and now this blue, each of which are outstanding and admirably consistent cheeses. The mountain caves of the Midi-Pyrénées straddle the border with Spain, and while this blue is somewhat like Roquefort, the distinction is the wax coating, allowing the sweet milky whey to remain in the cheese, softening the sharp minerality into a richer, sweeter, and floral taste. Dry reds – such as Chateau Montus Madiran – are ideal partners.
