Hercule de Charlevoix

Ingredients: Unpasteurized milk, Bacterial culture, Salt, Rennet.

L’Hercule de Charlevoix is an artisan cheese with a rosy copper coloured rind and a smooth, firm, supple paste that becomes slightly crumbly with age. Marked buttery aroma with a hint of dairy. Complex flavours of nuts, butter and grain, with a fruity end note.

The name of this cheese refers to the nickname given to Baie-Saint-Paul native Jean-Baptiste Grenon ‒ l’Hercule du Nord or Hercules of the North. According to legend, in 1759 he was made prisoner by Wolfe’s troops but was quickly released because of his mythical strength that no man could master.

Launched by the Labbé family in 2007, L’Hercule de Charlevoix is produced with milk from a herd of 30 Jerseys on la Ferme Stessi, in close proximity to the cheesemaking facility
