Le Riopelle de l'Isle is a triple-cream cheese from Quebec that has an oily and sometimes flowing texture known to melt in the mouth. It possesses a smooth buttery taste, with hints of hazelnuts and mushrooms.
It is named after Jean-Paul Riopelle, a renowned Québécois artist and painter, and for each 1.4 kg piece, $1 goes to a foundation that helps the children of Isle-aux-Grues, Quebec, Canada, the island where this cheese is manufactured, to get a higher education.
The label on Le Riopelle de l'Isle is a reproduction of one of Riopelle's paintings.
