The Brie de Meaux
The King of Cheeses, an incomparable taste.
Following a tasting of more than 50 cheeses at a historical congress in Vienna at the beginning of the XIXth century, the Brie de Meaux was proclaimed King of Cheeses. It is made from raw cow milk, and is the fruit of a dozen production stages plus maturation, many of which are carried out by hand. It is a cheese that needs to be completely ripened, and this is revealed when the yellow ‘flesh’ turns golden, indicating that it is ready to be eaten. It has a creamy, supple texture and an elegant aspect. For La Crèmerie Royale, a six-week maturation period is required to allow the development of all the subtlety and the magnificent bouquet, just for you.

A cool temperature is required to keep the Brie de Meaux fresh for several days, ideally below 8°C. Serve 30 minutes before tasting to ensure that the cheese attains its true gustatory heights.
