Brie de Meaux has a taste with sweet, buttery flavours followed by mushroom notes. It has an aromatic nose and a creamy, smooth texture. As the cheese ages, the rind develops red or brown patches. When nearly half of the straw coloured pate is ripe and soft, it indicates Brie de Meaux is ready for consumption.
Brie de Meaux, named after the town of Meaux, Evidence in the chronicles of Charlemagne suggests the tasting of Brie by the Emperor in the year 774. It is also said, Louis XVI last wish was a tasting of Brie cheese.
