Description: Epoisses AOP (Protected Designation of Origin) is a raw cow’s milk cheese produced in Bourgogne, France. The Fromagerie Gaugry is the last dairy still producing authentic Epoisses with raw milk. The cheese has creamy, chewy and firm texture. With a distinctive soft red-orange colour, it is categorised as a smear-ripened cheese washed in marc de Bourgogne. It takes at least 6 weeks to mature fully. Despite its pungent smell, the cheese has a spicy, sweet and salty flavour.
Wine Pairing: Epoisses goes well with Trappist beer and Sauternes.
Our cheeses can be kept for at least a week from the date of delivery. After opening the initial wrapping paper, we recommend to store the cheeses in a clean, dry cling wrap and store them in the lower compartment of the fridge which is usually not too cold or dry.
