Fromage de Meaux is a refined double cream cheese that you will appreciate even more if you let it age a bit. It has got smell and it has got bite, with a rich buttery flavour. The rind on younger cheeses should be white and compact. As the cheese ages the rind starts getting mottled with reddish-brown spots, but don't be alarmed: it’s at this stage precisely that the cheese is at its best! On more mature wheels the flavour intensifies and becomes almost spicy, with the cheese slowly starting to become runny. The perfect Bordeaux-Baguette match!
