Warning: If you dare trying Epoisses cheese, it will become your favourite!
Epoisses has a very supple, smooth and unctuous texture. Produced in the village of Epoisses in France, this cheese has light beige rind on the outside while it is white in the heart. Its rind becomes sticky and shiny with regular washing in saltwater with the addition of Marc de Bourgogne. Its maturing process lasts six to eight weeks. Epoisses cheese is a very creamy cheese.
Country of origin: France Region, town: Bourgogne, Époisses Source of milk: Cow’s Milk Texture: Smooth, creamy and firm Flavour: Salty, spicy, sweet, rich Aging time: At least 6 weeks
Serving suggestion: Époisses cheese is best served with raisin bread or with warm crusty bread.
Wine Pairing: Époisses cheese goes well with beer, with a white wine from Burgundy, a sweet wine such as Sauternes, or a Marc de Bourgogne's spirit.
Please note: Epoisses can be a very runny cheese. So, we may pack your Epoisses in a container instead of cheese paper if we deem it too runny to travel in cheese paper. That will affect the presentation of course but the taste will still be fantastic.
This epoisses cheese was perfect- and tasted amazing!
Service & Product
Service & Products excellent. Order received quickly & was accurate. Three different French cheeses were all in perfect condition & tasted wonderful.
The product was great and the process of ordering and pick-up worked well. The product was not supplied in the way we usually buy it i.e the circular little cardboard containers they are usually retailed in France. Do you have this type of product e.g. 250g?
Thanks Chris, our Epoisses is sold 'a la coupe', meaning it is cut on order from a bigger wheel. We do not stock prepackaged ones sorry!
