This firm, interior-ripened cheese, made from pasteurized milk and steeped in fortified wine, is truly an original product of the Fromagerie Champêtre. Starting with such high-quality local ingredients, Le Phare de l’Île Ronde certainly deserves the recognition it has earned as a Lanaudière regional product. Lightly marbled with a deep red rind and a slightly crumbly texture, Le Phare de l’Île Ronde is absolutely distinctive. The cheese’s unique appearance is striking, and the aroma of fortified wine imparts a unique and memorable flavour.
Tip: To bring out the fullest flavours of this cheese, let it sit at room temperature for one hour before serving.
Le Phare de l’Île Ronde is available in specialty shops and in some supermarkets.
