Riopelle

Riopelle is the perfect accompaniment for your holiday cheese plate. This triple cream, soft bloomy rind is luscious, silky and by no means a light bodied cheese. It tastes like ripe butter and milk with an aroma of wet mushrooms.

Riopelle is a cheese comparable to a good, high quality french brie but it’s made on the Isle aux Grues in Quebec. Each label adorns the art of Jean-Paul Riopelle, an inhabitant of the island and a very active member of the artistic community. This cheese pairs well with a sweeter white or ripe, earthy red. I eat it with baguette and jam for a snack or as an addition to any cheese plate that needs a soft, rich cheese.
