Brie – Tours de Paris
Brie is the best known French cheese and has a nickname “The Queen of Cheeses”. Brie is a soft cheese named after the French region Brie, where it was originally created. Several hundred years ago, Brie was one of the tributes which had to be paid to the French kings.
As with all the cheeses here at Chateau Bole, this is another example of how a finely crafted artisanal variety of cheese can be so much more than their mass-market counterparts. This cheese is crafted by Henri Hutin, a creamery that dates back to 1922 where it was founded in Lacroix-sur-Meuse. His recipes, know-how and rigour quickly earned him a reputation for excellence in the region, and far beyond, and the title of “Master Cheese Maker”.1964: patiently and tenaciously, Henri Hutin developed, enlarged and modernised his cheese plant. Today, and since 1982 the production facilities were transferred to the Dieue-sur-Meuse site in Lorraine
Soft cheeses should almost always be paired with white wines. We would recommend dry whites with this cheese. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinto Grigio or alternatively a dry sparkling wine.
