Le Riopelle de l'Isle

Le Riopelle de l'Isle is a triple cream cheese from Quebec that has an oily and sometimes flowing texture known to melt in the mouth. It possesses a smooth buttery taste, with hints of hazelnuts and mushrooms.

It is named after Jean-Paul Riopelle, a renowned Québécois artist and painter, and for each 1.4 kg piece, one dollar will go to a foundation that will help children of Isle-aux-Grues, Quebec, Canada, the island where this cheese is manufactured, to get a higher education.

The label on "Le Riopelle de l'Isle" is a reproduction of one of Riopelle's paintings.
