Brillat-Savarin is a soft-ripened triple cream cow's milk cheese with at least 72% fat in dry matter (roughly 40% overall). It has a natural, bloomy rind. It was created c. 1890 as "Excelsior" or "Délice des gourmets" ("Gourmets' delight") by the Dubuc family, near Forges-les-Eaux (Seine-Maritime). Cheese-maker Henri Androuët renamed it in the 1930s, as an homage to 18th-century French gourmet and political figure Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.
Brillat-Savarin is produced all year round mainly in Burgundy. It comes in 12–13 cm (4.7–5.1 in) wheels and approximately 4 cm thick, and is matured for one to two weeks in dry cellar. A cheese made from raw cow’s milk. With triple cream, its fat in dry matter content is 75%. It has a creamy and soft texture and delicious taste.

The cheese arrived in perfect condition, well packed and ready to eat. The flavour was great, we ate it much more quickly than we should have as it was so good.
This would be perfect for the end of a dinner party with a glass of port. Since we are in lockdown this is a perfect indulgence for 2 with or without port. If you want a creamy cheesy extravaganza this is the way to go.
