This Brie comes from Ermitage, a small cooperative located in Eastern France, near the Jura Mountains, filled with lush, rolling hills and valleys. It has a buttery flavor, creamy texture, and smells fresh with perhaps a light hint of mushrooms. This brie is creamy, supple and flavorful, with the traditional moldy rind. It is the best example of a soft-ripened or bloomy rind cheese, as the unique cultures begin on the exterior of the cheese, ripening inward and presenting themselves in the soft, white surface mold for which the cheese is notorious. 60% fat content. Pairs well with a full bodied red wine.
