    M.F. : 27 % Moisture : 46 %
    Aged for at least 60 days, this semi-soft, washed-rind cheese is made from Lanaudière Holsteins’ thermized milk. Its coppery orange rind covered in fine white fuzz hides a supple creamy beige interior. It features an aroma of cream, butter and herbs.

    This cheese is offered in classic or reserve versions. It acquires its “de réserve” status from an additional 40 days of aging, for a total of 100 days. This process makes the cheese more intense but not too aggressive, giving it a character that is markedly different from the original cheese.
