Fromagerie du Champ à la Meule, Lanaudière
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. Its texture is creamy and smooth, and its strong taste reveals slightly tangy milky, fruity flavours, with a rustic note that melts in the mouth.
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.
