Made by La Maison D'Affinage Maurice Dufour Inc. - Famille Migneron

The secret to the Migneron family's cheeses lies in the aging process, where nothing is left to chance. Maurice Dufour and his team apply their skills to make each and every creation exactly what it should be: exceptional and unique. Their cheeses burst with the aromas, flavours and specificities of the region, making them worthy representatives of both the Migneron Family and the Charlevoix.

Keeping Cheese


Proper storage includes making sure that the wrapping adheres well to the cheese to prevent it from drying out. Keep cheeses on a lower shelf of your refrigerator, far from foods with strong odours, to avoid absorption of unwanted tastes and smells. If you follow these guidelines, your refrigerator’s vegetable drawer will be a good storage spot.

Plastic wrap is the most versatile, accessible and efficient way to preserve cheese freshness. It also provides the tightest seal to protect from moisture, odours and possibly mould in the fridge.
Refrigerator Shelf-life: 2-3 weeks.


Most cheeses can be frozen, but it is important to keep in mind that freezing can affect texture and character. This is why thawed cheeses are best reserved for use in cooking. Neither the taste nor texture of meals cooked with previously frozen cheeses will be affected.
You can freeze Blue cheese, in pieces of 500 g or less, for up to two months! Just carefully wrap cheese in plastic wrap and place in an airtight freezer bag or vacuum pack. Before using, it is important to allow cheese to thaw slowly in the refrigerator.
