La Rumeur is a double cream, bloomy rind cheese made in the style of Brie from pasteurized cow's milk and cream. It is named after the 'rumour' that the first governor of the seignior of Portneuf fell in love with a young Amerindian girl and therefore was beheaded and burnt by the Hurons.

This Brie is aged to perfection so as to evoke maximum of its exquisite, tasty flavours. The cheese has been a 1st prize winner at the 2011 Sélection Caseus. It pairs well with a Californian Zinfandel (red) or a Blonde Ale.
