Brie de Melun AOC

      Brie de Melun PDO
      Brie
      Бри Noir













Brie de Melun is said to be the ancestor of all Brie's which originated in the region of northern France known as Seine-et-Marne. It was granted an AOC protection in 1980 that requires that the cheese be manufactured under strict guidelines for supreme quality.



Description



It is an aromatic cheese with slightly musty and straw-like smells floating the air. Over-ripening the Brie can result in an unpleasant odor from bacteria that are used to ripen the mould. The texture is semi-soft and the rind slightly dry. As the cheese matures to a Brie Noir, the rind turns darker and crumbly. In addition, the pate is drier and darker and the flavour stronger to taste. The usual flavours are strongly lactic and slightly salty finished by soft, barnyard, sour notes.



Cooking



Brie de Melun is used to prepare regional dishes like croûte au brie. It pairs well with Gaillac and wines from Burgundy or the Rhone Valley.
