Aged one year, Canotier de l'Isle is a firm paste cheese ripened on the surface. Under the delicate rind of ocre shades, the ivory paste reveals the very typical taste of hazelnut, with pleasant fruity and creamy notes. The artisanal method used to make the Canotier de l'Isle is inspired by an ancestral recipe perfected by the first cheesemakers who arrived on the island at the beginning of the 20th century.
The label shows a painting by the artist Robert Gagné from l'Isle-aux-Grues. The painting represents the transport of materials and mail by ice canoe, the only way to reach the island in winter during the era of the first cheese factory in the nineteen hundreds.
