Brillat Savarin

$30.99/LB

''Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you who you are.'' So said the gastronome Brillat Savarin. Being cheese experts, we'll tell you that if you like this cheese you are a genius. The best triple-creme we've found, ripened in Murray's caves, means 75% butterfat, and a thin, edible, snowy rind with nary a whiff of ammonia. All fresh, lactic flavor with an edging of mushroomy balances each buttercream icing bite. Pasteurized, yes, but masterful as the many bloomy rinds from Normandy are. Cut that fat with bubbles, from California to Champagne to Italian.


If you order half a pound we will send you half of the wheel which may be slightly heavier than a half pound. If you order a full pound, a full wheel will be sent.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit
    Pair with: Bright, tangy goat’s milk cheeses like Westfield Capri and buttery bloomy rinds like Nettle Meadow Kunik.

  • Pinot Noir

    Lighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.

    Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.
    Pair with: Almost anything! Works with funky Frenchies Epoisses and Langres, or mild natural rinds like St. Nectaire.

    New World Pinot: More sugary, with jam-like fruit, dried cherries, oak, and spice.
    Pair with: Full, fatty flavors. Alpines, cheddars, and Manchego.

     

  • Rose

    We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
    Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.
