Brie de Meaux AOP

Review 
€5.88
Tax included

One day, I tasted the Brie de Meaux ...

Proclaimed "prince of cheeses and first desserts" at the Congress of Viennes, in 1815. Since then, this distinguished guest whom I receive with pleasure settles down regularly at my table.

Kg
Quantity

There are 6 types of Brie, but only 2 have obtained the designation of origin, Brie de Melun and Brie de Meaux.

Coming from the territory of Brie, cereal land par excellence, which offered him pastures capable of providing rich and fatty milks.

On the nose, it releases aromas of mushrooms and offers a very assertive and long-lasting bouquet to the taste. 

Wine suggestion: Givry (red), Jasnières (slightly mellow white).
