Bleu de Gex haut Jura or Bleu de Septmoncel are appellations of origin designating a French cheese from the Haut-Jura plateaus, straddling the departments of Ain and Jura. 

This appellation has been protected by an AOC since September 20, 1977 and by a PDO since September 25, 2008. It is a mild blue. The word "Gex" is printed in relief on the rind. The monks of the Saint-Claude abbey were already making it in the 13th century.

It is produced by 48 milk producers via 2 cheese dairies and 2 artisanal cheese dairies: Chezery-Forens (Ain), Lajoux (Jura), Les Moussières (Jura) and Villard-Saint-Sauveur (Jura), which provide a total annual production of approximately 558 tons per year1.

It is a raw milk cheese made from cow's milk of the Montbéliarde or Simmental breeds, with a blue-veined, unpressed and uncooked paste, with an average weight of 7.5 kg.

It is best consumed from May to July, but also from April to November, after a two-month maturing period. It can be served with aged wines such as port.

Production: 518 tons in 1996, 498 tons in 1998, 520 tons in 2000, 558 tons in 2010.

The Bleu de Gex cheese wheel, with flat faces and clearly rounded angles between the faces and the heel, measures between 31 to 35 cm in diameter and 10 cm thick and weighs between 6 and 9 kg.

It contains 29% fat.
