The Peterson team has worked closely with respected French affineur Hervé Mons to develop the Le Pommier cheeses, including this Brie. The milk is sourced from herds of the classic Normande cow, a traditional breed that produces rich, grassy milk high in the proteins needed for cheesemaking.
With a classic bloomy rind and soft paste, this two-pound wheel offers earthy and vegetal aromas that intensify as the cheese ripens. It is full-flavored and mildly funky, with flavors that range from milk and sweet cream to mushroom and cauliflower.
