This soft cheese with a tender and mild bloomy rind is made from pasteurized milk and cream. Its creamy texture has flavours of butter, fresh mushrooms and hazelnuts that become more pronounced with age. Also available in a lighter version.
It is said that there was, in a small parish in the Portneuf region, a lady that lived to be 107 years old. One day, her nephew asked her what the secret to her longevity was. She smiled and told him that every morning, she would enjoy a piece of delicious cheese on country-style bread and a great bowl of fresh air on the patio of the local café.
