Le Seigneur de Tilly

Fromagerie Bergeron

Chaudière-Appalaches


Firm

M.F. : 15 % Moisture : 51 %

This firm lactose-free and rindless cheese made from pasteurized milk is wrapped in a yellow wax that promotes quality interior-ripening during the three-month process. Its interior is of a pale butter colour, homogenous, smooth, slightly elastic, and sometimes dotted with small holes (eyes). It has a slightly roasted aroma of milk, butter and nut. Its taste is slightly tangy, creamy and buttery with touches of hazelnut.

This cheese works great as a first tasting service and is perfect for beginning a meal and making sauces, fondue and gratins. It’s always a first choice for snacks. It enjoys the company of ales, dry white wines, dry rosés and light reds.

The cheese’s name is a tribute to sieur Pierre-Noël LeGardeur, who founded the seigniory of Tilly in 1700, in the very same place where now stands the Fromagerie Bergeron in the town of Saint-Antoine-de-Tilly.

Le Seigneur de Tilly is available from the cheese maker or in specialty cheese shops and supermarkets.

Awards and distinctions

Le Seigneur de Tilly finished third in its category at the 2005 American Cheese Society Judging & Competition and won Gold at the 2005 L.A. County Fair.
