Étiquette - Zacharie Cloutier

Zacharie Cloutier is a sheep’s milk cheese ripened from 4 to 6 months. Its firm paste is semi-cooked and exhales sweet aromas of butter and caramel. Its orange-coloured washed rind shows a zigzag design and the presence of small buds. The name, Zacharie Cloutier, is a tribute to the Cloutier-Houde family ancestor.
