Brie De Meaux
Unpasteurized Cow's Milk
Originally from Meaux, this Brie, an AOP since 1980, is made in a large area of production. Our Brie “Fleur Rouge” is made by the Dongé family in Triconville in Meuse, in the East of the Paris Basin, known for its rich soils and large fields. It takes 25 litres of cow’s milk to make one Brie. It is matured for 6 to 8 weeks, during which it is turned regularly to prevent it from “sinking” in the middle and to develop an even, velvety rind. As the cheese ages, the rind develops red or brown patches. The texture is creamy and meltingly-soft and its aroma is pungent. Its flavours are rich and buttery, with notes of mushrooms and truffles. Although most people will be familiar with Brie, they may be surprised by the strength and depth of this Brie, as it is made from raw milk. This is the real Brie, the one that is known as the “King of Cheeses”.
