Brie De Meaux
Details: Protected by an AOC, Brie de Meaux Donge is one of the finest French Bries. It has a smooth, runny texture and a strong yet creamy flavour. Etienne Donge set up the dairy in 1930 and his great grandchildren Luc and Jean-Michel run it today. They follow very traditional methods hand-ladle the curd and make a classic full flavoured vegetabley Brie. Brie de Meaux is made in flattened discs weighing roughly 900g to 3.2kg each. It has a white rind with pinkish-beige mottling which distinguishes it from many of its copies. The paste has a glossy straw colour which deepens to warm ivory and which at its peak should bulge but not run. The taste is complex with a nutty, fruity flavour. An amazingly tasty and delightful cheese.
