In 1975, cheese factory manager, Jean Verrier gave birth to the very first Le Rustique Camembert.

To this day, his artisan techniques continue to inspire the production of all Le Rustique cheeses.

Le Rustique cheeses are in constant evolution and each stage has its own taste.

The maturation process of Brie can be divided in three stages, with each stage offering different tastes and textures:

* Young: 25 days or more before the Use By Date – Texture: firm; Flavour: light and fresh
