Notes: When ripe, Brie de Meaux should be covered with a white bloomy rind that results from the Penicillium Candidum mold. With age, the white mold frequently becomes dotted with patches of red or brown. This cheese is sweet and buttery, reflecting the high-quality of the milk used in production. Expect notes of mushrooms and almonds and milky, rich aromas.
