Coulommiers is a member of the Brie family hailing from the "land of Brie," about 40 miles east of Paris. It is smaller and thicker than the more typical Brie-style cheeses, and some say that Coulommiers is the predecessor of Brie. The Coulommiers we select for Artisanal Premium Cheese is the color of fresh churned butter with a supple paste and well-developed rind. Along with its soft mushroomy flavors is a hint of sweet almonds in the winter months and a whiff of chives in spring. Coulommiers pairs well with with Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or even Merlot. Each piece weighs approximately 12 ounces.
