Beillevaire Brie de Meaux AOC (250g)
For preorders, cut-off is on Wednesday, for delivery Saturday of the following week.
This large cheese has been declared the Prince of cheeses and first in desserts! A soft-ripened cheese with a bloomy rind, Brie de Meaux is exclusively made from raw, whole cow’s milk.
It has been attributed a registered designation of origin (AOC) since 1980 and a protected designation of origin (AOP) since 1996.
Today the production area of Brie de Meaux stretches along the entire eastern Paris Basin (the entire département of Seine-et-Marne in addition to parts of Yonne, Aube, Marne, Meuse, and Haute-Marne).
Its rind is covered by scant white down and can be dotted with reddish spots when it has been matured for a long time; the ivory colored paste shows small holes. The center can be white and chalky when the cheese is still relatively young.
