Météorite is a soft, surface-ripened, ash-covered blue cheese made from pasteurized cow's milk and cream. It has a supple and creamy paste that is flecked throughout with pockets of blue moulds. The delicate blue flavour complemented by the creamy taste makes the cheese quite unique. Try pairing it with a Porto or old Bordeaux to bring out the delicate flavours.
