Brie de Meaux A.O.C.
Made by Société Fromagère de Raival
Coagulant Animal Rennet
Loved by royalty from Charlemagne onwards, this Brie is one of only two types made artisanally in its original home just east of Paris.
Characteristics: while young its flavours are nutty with a hint of mushroom; as it ages, it develops pungency and a deeper, slightly acidic taste.
Best with: Can you really improve on a slice of Brie de Meaux, a fluffy, fresh baguette and a few grapes? We don’t think so.
