Epoisses is made in a small town in Burgundy, in France and is one of the great gourmet cheeses of France and of the world. Each gourmet cheese is covered in an edible reddish-brown coating, and underneath that coating is a creamy, soft, white interior with a daunting aroma that comes straight from the farm, often said it is a candidate for the top ten most pungent French cheeses. Epoisses is produced in small discs and is washed in Marc de Bourgogne as it ripens.

The flavor is deliciously rustic but also creamy and refreshing with sour lemons lingering on the palate. Because of the strong flavor and aroma of this cheese, it is best served on its own, rather than used in cooking. Truly a great French gourmet cheese, Epoisses must rank high on your list of great French gourmet cheeses to be both savored and appreciated.

Ingredients:Pasteurized cow's milk, salt, bacterial culture, rennet, marc de Bourgogne.
One of my all time favorites! An amazing cheese! Just get a nice unflavored cracker to put it on, some jazz music, a nice glass of whiskey and a good book to read and you'll be having a party all by yourself!

very complex and creamy.The rind is stronger and very tasty. The cheese itself is melty and strong. when I took a sip of Sauvingon Blanc with it, the flavor totally changed into an explosion over flavor. It was almost overwhelming. Took me right back to a barnyard.

This is one of the most enjoyable cheeses I have ever tasted. It bathes the tongue with its smoothness and has a very buttery taste but much more complex.

Nice cheese specially when it's ripe.
