Montbriac is a cheese made from pasteurized cow's milk, it is easily recognizable with its ashy dough and slightly blue-veined ivory color.
It is manufactured by Compagnie Fromagère de la Vallée de l'Ance in Beauzac in the Haute-Loire department in France.
Texture: Melty and creamy
Flavor: Lightly blue
The work of the cheese maker during the manufacture and the draining allows to create openings in which blue molds will develop during maturing. During its slow maturation in the cellars, the fine molds scatter its melting and creamy texture, which becomes tender at maturity. The beautiful gray dress of Montbriac obtained through a very thin layer of vegetable charcoal then appears as and when care and refining.
