Soft

M.F. : 26% Moisture : 50%

Made with pasteurized milk, the aromatic richness of this soft cheese with a washed rind reveals, among other things, a turnip smell. Its salted butter taste also features a range of complex flavours. Suppleness is also part of its features. Being a cheese with a lot of character, L’Empereur is aptly named. There is also a lighter version of this cheese made with pasteurized partly skimmed milk.

L’Empereur
M.F.: 26%, moisture: 50%

L’Empereur Light
M.F.: 15%, moisture: 47%

L'Empereur is available from the cheese maker, in specialty grocery stores and cheese shops, and supermarkets.
