Brie de Meaux AOC is a full and fruity raw milk cheese, traditionally made to artisan methods. A soft, unctuous texture with easy yet complex, nutty flavours make this cheese one of our customers’ favourites. Very pale yellow when ripe, with a white rind. Between 21-25 litres of milk are used to produce a single Brie de Meaux which when finished weighs around 3kg.
The cheeses are dry salted and allowed to mature or “Affinage” on reed mats, in cool, but not cold conditions, with the greatest care being taken to ensure that the fragile cheeses are brought up to peak condition. Granted AOC status in 1980, Brie de Meaux AOC can only come from a tightly defined area in the Ile-de-France near Paris, a region that has maintained its rural traditions and hand-crafted production.
Please note all cheeses are hand cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as they can!
