“The milky richness of this cheese is a tribute to the organic milk with which it is made. The cheese has a smooth texture, warm nutty and floral notes in aroma and taste. Inspired by the traditional cheesemaking know-how from the Jura region, the cheesemaker created an amazing cheese,” said Phil Bélanger, chair of the 2011 Canadian Cheese Grand Prix Jury and president of the New Brunswick Chapter of La Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs.
The Fromagerie du Presbytère made the winning 40-kg cheese wheel that was judged by a jury of experts who chose from 17 winners in different categories at the prestigious biennial Dairy Farmers of Canada cheese competition. Louis d’sOr also won in the firm, farmhouse and organic award categories.
Winners in the competition’s 17 categories included the Ontario-based Arla Foods’s Mascarpone Tre Stelle for Fresh Cheese; the Quebec-based Fromagerie Lemaire’s Fromage Suisse Lemaire for Swiss-type Cheese and the P.E.I.-based Cows Creamery’s Avonlea Clothbound Cheddar in the category of Aged Cheddar (one to three years)
