||Cheese dates back through legend to the 5th century. Charlemagne in 774 was said to love this now world-renowned cheese. Most Domestic Brie is factory made while fermier or farmhouse production tends to be named after the region in which it is made. There are two name controlled Brie types: Brie de Meaux and Brie de Melun. Both are raw milk according to their AOC Guidelines, which means we are not able to import them FDA rules require that raw mild cheeses must be aged for at least 60 Days to be imported. The Fromage de Meaux is an acceptable substitute under the circumstances with flavor that is remarkably Close. The texture is soft and smooth while the flavor conveys more earth and richness than much milder Brie on the market. The wheel, packaged in a traditional wood box, is dramatic in display, as are the wedges on a cheeseboard. Want to start a little smaller? Then try our Brie de Nangis.
