Pied de Vents

Pied de Vents hails from the wind swept Magdalen Islands of the St Lawrence.  It is a washed rind cheese that clearly offers an earthy aroma with a lingering taste of grass, hay and flowers.  The interesting name refers to the sun’s rays shining through the clouds.

How to Enjoy:

The unique grazing of the island pastures suggests serving this cheese as a feature on the cheeseboard to representat a unique terroir.  A red Merlot goes well.
