La Meule du Moulin presents an orangey rind with a supple, unctuous pale yellow pate. While its aroma evokes green pastures, it has a slightly sharp dairy note and a pleasant fruitiness.
Its name refers to le Moulin de la Rémy ‒ one of Québec’s few remaining water mills, located near Laiterie Charlevoix in Baie-Saint-Paul, QC.
