Mélange Brie is a soft-ripened, bloomy rind cheese made by the Marin French Cheese Company in northern California. A brie-style cheese, it uses a 50/50 blend of pasteurized cow's and goat's milk.
It is a very delicate cheese with a smooth, velvety bone-white paste enveloped by a white fuzzy rind. Flavours are of sweet buttery cow milk and fresh tangy goat milk that becomes more piquant as it matures. Pair it with a California Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.
