Cheese: Le 1608 of Charlevoix

If anybody ever gets a chance to buy cheese from the Charlevoix region of Quebec they won't be dissapointed. This area is a gastronomic delight. This is a cheese that is unique to this area which is produced in small batches by a very small breed of cattle.
A few hundred head of cattle imported from France between 1608 and 1670 gave birth to the Canadienne breed. Of the estimated 500 000 head herd in 1900, less than 500 remain today. It is a raw milk cheese that has a unique flavor all to its own. I had it today with some dry white Italian. What a treat!
