Epoisses is a perennial favorite of fans of strong-smelling cheese. This classic cow's milk cheese hails from Burgundy and has been made in the small town of Epoisses since the late 1700s. In order to develop the characteristic dark orange rind, Epoisses is washed with brine for several weeks then finished with wine or brandy. In the Artisanal Premium Cheese caves we continue the Affinage process, washing our Epoisses several times with Burgundy brandy. This extra washing deepens the flavors of the cheese and guarantees a spoonable, silky paste. One piece weighs approximately 8-10 ounces.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
