Bleu is a common prefix for French blue-veined cheeses, usually followed by the town or region’s name where the cheese is made. First created by Antoine Roussel in 1850, production of Bleu de Laqueuille (from the village of Laqueuille) gradually spread to the surrounding region of Auvergne; it then became known as Bleu d’Auvergne. Bleu de Laqueuille is still made by a cooperative in Laqueuille today.

Bleu de Laqueuille has an off-white interior with pockets of blue-green mould and a creamy, spicy, slightly salty, tangy flavour. Made form rich cow's, this cheese offers an alliance between a rich, blue cheese flavour and a creamy, smooth texture.

It goes well with chardonnay, dessert wines and most robust red wines.
