Bleu Ermite Canadian Blue Cheese
Bleu Ermite Canadian Blue Cheese is the First Blue Cheese crafted by the Monks of the Benedictine Abbey of Quebec.
Bleu Ermite is a whole milk, semi-soft cheese. The aroma reflected is a grassy, herbal and mushroom-like smell, and it has a bit of a tangy taste palette. Deeply blue-veined, the mold gives the cheese it’s blue speckling. A wheel of Bleu Ermite weighs 2 kg, has a whitish-grey skin, and comes wrapped in silver foil. The middle of a wheel is particularly creamy. This cheese is the perfect strength as an introduction to blue cheese, or a cheese fit to impress any seasoned taster.
Use Bleu Ermite to accompany pears and walnuts, or crumble over soup for a change of tone. Great paired with a burger or a nice rare steak. Or enjoy with a port, late-harvest Riesling or icewine.
