Ile-aux-Grues hails from a very distinct region along the St Lawrence River in Quebec. A naturally aged cheddar, this cheese delivers balanced clean layers of sharp – to fruity – to salty. There are some characteristic protein crystals in the five year and older versions, yet it maintains a smooth meit-in-your-mouth texture.
Serve in your favorite cheddar recipes… don’t be surprised if this one becomes your preferred choice! Goes well on it’s own, and very simply with a crisp slice of apple. A bigger wine makes a better match. Go for reds of Cabernet Sauvignon blends, Pinot Noir, or Gewurztraminer if white is preferred.
