Rich & Creamy Brillat Savarin Cheese
Brillat Savarin is a triple crème cows’ milk cheese made in Burgundy. Triple crème means that cream is added to the whole milk before the cheesemaking process starts.
The cheese is shaped like a small drum and is coated in a light penicillin mould giving it the appearance of snow. The texture is reminiscent of clotted cream and the flavour is light and delicate with a rich creaminess stemming from the additional cream. There can also be a slight sourness which nicely balances the richness.
Paxton & Whitfield’s Brillat Savarin cheesemaker is based in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges in Côte-d'Or; a region famous also for its fine wine making.
Brillat is so creamy that it demands some bubbles to brighten it up. Sparkling wines will cut through the richness with their acidicty and delicate bubbles. It pairs particularly well with Paxton & Whitfield’s Champagne as it is biscuity in flavour which elevates the Brillat Savarin.
In Summer, pair with fresh seasonal fruits such as peaches and strawberries and in the Winter, try with a drizzle of our Truffle Honey on Paxton & Whitfield Charcoal Crackers.Read More
