Quote from the Cheesemonger:

“The best things in life are brie, and this French classic does not disappoint…” – Harry B.

Description

This Brie is not just any French Brie, but one of only two approved by the governing body of French cheese. It is an AOC cheese, so can only be produced in certain regions of France.

Brie de Meaux is probably the strongest of all soft white cheeses. The aroma is remeniscent to the depths of a woodland. With the rich golden pate tasting deep and complex, with notes of winter root vegetables. Be warned though, once you try our Brie de Meaux there is no going back.

This is a raw, soft unpasteurised cow’s milk cheese covered with a bloomy rind, a result of inoculation with Penicillium Candidum molds. As the cheese ages, the rind develops red or brown patches. When nearly half of the straw coloured pate is ripe and soft, it indicates Brie de Meaux is ready for consumption.

The cheese pairs perfectly with Champagne, a red Bordeaux or a fruity Burgundy.
