This firm, rindless cheese features a hazelnut flavour that grows stronger with age. It used to be made with raw milk. Today, it is mainly made with pasteurized milk, but the Laiterie Charlevoix will sometimes make it from thermized milk and label it as such on the packaging.
Did you know some Cheddars can be stored for up to 10 years? The Cheddar Vieux Charlevoix is available in different ages, up to 8 years old. The CHEDDAR Charlevoix, made since 1948 by the Laiterie Charlevoix, accounts for 40% of the cheese maker’s production.
The Cheddar Vieux Charlevoix is available only at the Laiterie Charlevoix.
