Known as the ‘king of cheeses’ in France, Brie de Meaux was also a cheese of emperors – Charlemagne famously sung its praises in the Middle Ages. Protected today by French law, the cheese must be made with raw milk and calf’s rennet in the Ile-de-France region around 30 miles east of Paris.
Our Brie de Meaux is made by Saint Luc with milk from the Seine et Marne area near Meaux, the cheese has a distinct earthy avour with strong notes of mushroom and a hint of nuts, while the glorious silky interior comes from the curds being hand ladled to retain their delicate structure.
The oozy joy of a fully ripened Brie de Meaux is a very special experience. Intense, luxurious and deeply gratifying, it needs no accompaniment save perhaps a flute of Champagne.
