L’Emmental de Charlevoix is a smooth, supple cheese with no rind and small holes. It has a rich aroma reminiscent of salted butter and a nutty, buttery flavour with a hint of fruitiness.
Prepared since 2014 with milk from a herd of Jerseys, the flavour of this Emmental is typical of the Charlevoix terroir.
Established in 1948 by the Labbé family, back in the day Laiterie Charlevoix bottled and delivered milk in the village of Baie Saint-Paul.

It met with great success until the 70s when industrial-sized dairies began to emerge, an era when artisan and regional dairies and creameries were quickly vanishing. In the 80s, Baie-Saint-Paul’s dairy abandoned its milk-bottling activities to concentrate on cheesemaking.Read More
