“B” is for Brie de Melun.

Brie de Melun originated in the region of France known as Seine-et-Marne. Supposedly, it’s the Brie that started it all – all other cheeses known as Brie came about as a result of this one.

It’s produced from cow’s milk, and those cows graze in the lush valleys of Seine-et-Marne, enjoying the lovely grasses and flowers of the region. Since they eat so well, they produce exceptional milk.

It pairs well with any of the red wines of Burgundy, Bordeaux, and Côtes du Rhône.
