This soft triple-cream cheese with a bloomy rind melts in your mouth and has a wonderful taste of hazelnut, mushroom and a hint of butter.
The Riopelle de l'Île is named after the famous painter Jean-Paul Riopelle, who kindly lent his name and one of his masterpieces to promote this new cheese. Mr. Riopelle passed away a few months after launching this great cheese. For each wheel of cheese sold, one dollar goes to the Île-aux-Grues Youth Foundation.
