Brie de Meaux
A soft velvety texture with a tender bloomy rind. Mentioned anecdotally in writings dating back to the ninth century, this cheese is an absolute classic. The taste is complex and rounded and soothing, with notes ranging from mushroom to cauliflower to sauteed cabbage and leek. The pate is a rich golden colour, contrasting the bloomy whites and deeper flaxen flourishes on the rind.
