Brise du Matin is a soft, bloomy rind cheese made in the style of Brie/Camembert from pasteurized cow's milk and cream. It has a creamy paste covered by a smooth and tender rind with flavours of fresh butter, mushroom, and hazelnut that become more pronounced with age. A low fat version is also available, called Légère Brise du Matin. Brise du Matin has been a bronze winner at the International Cheese Awards 2014 while Légère Brise du Matin was placed 3rd in its category at the British Empire Cheese Competition 2013.

Pair a red Burgundy (red) or Blonde Ale to go with the creaminess of the cheese.
