The most recognized and celebrated cheese of France, Brie, gets a creamy upgrade with the “beautiful star” of Belletoile Triple Crème Brie. This soft-ripened cow’s milk cheese holds the traditional buttery flavor of Brie with the addition of cream to classify it as a triple crème. Aged for up to eight weeks, the cheese develops a beautifully bloomed, edible white rind which makes the Brie family of cheeses so distinct.
Using the standard of rating Brie cheeses, Belletoile classifies as a triple crème, meaning it has a butterfat content of 70%. Belletoile’s traditional sweet, milky taste retains a consistency evocative of fresh butter, while the light golden interior contributes to the overall feel, with a delectably rich, smooth and creamy texture. The cheese stays firm near the rind and becomes increasingly more supple as you open the interior, making it much richer than traditional Brie.
Application: Belletoile is perfect with a number of flavors, from fresh fruit and nuts, to a toasted baguette topped with roasted garlic.
Pairing: Try it with Champagne for a decadent combination, or a hearty Pinot Noir. Go triple-for-triple with an Abbey Tripel beer, like an Allagash Curieux.
