by Fromagerie 1860 DuVillage (Québec, Canada)
A Québec cheese packaged in a traditional corrugated cardboard box., and is named after Sir Wilfred Lauruer and his wife. It’s very creamy and has a slight vanilla/floral undertone. Not as runny as triple cream brie, the texture resembles softened butter. It’s very rich and just melts in your mouth.

It is mellow in taste, but has a pretty pungent aroma. The rind is quite coarse, I don’t think it’s edible.

Champfleury Cheese (Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec) (✦✦✦✦✧)
Champfleury is a unique washed-rind soft cow’s milk cheese that has the interior texture of a double cream brie enveloped in a delicious coppery orange rind. It has a pronounced bouquet and an irresistable fruity flavour. The poppy featured on the packaging, with its beautiful vibrant red petals, is a reminder of the French (Normandie) inspiration for this cheese.
