Epoisses de Bourgogne – Mini Cheese
A sweet and salty, pungent delight.
Sold per full 300g round, Epoisses is a soft, oozy, washed-rind cheese.
This cheese’s aroma and rind give it a certain spiciness, and has a creamy, chewy and firm texture.
Quote from the Cheesemonger:
“Don’t let the smell fool you, this cheese is so decadent that even the Queen couldn’t refuse it when it’s fully ripe.” – Mollie W.
Epoisses is produced by Jacques Hennart in the village of Époisses. With a distinctive soft red-orange colour, Epoisses is categorised as a smear-ripened cheese washed in Marc de Bourgogne; a Pomace Brandy made from the remnants of winemaking.
Underneath that, there is a creamy, white interior with a delightfully daunting aroma that comes straight from the farm. Epoisses is so stinky that it is banned on public transportation in France – a country usually tolerant of such aromas… But we just love it.
It pairs well with excellent dessert wines, such as Sauternes, and even some Trappist beers pair well with this pungent delight.
