DescriptionCreamy, soft, and occasionally runny cow's-milk cheese with a deep, penetrating aroma. Epoisses is washed in marc de Bourgogne, a fiery spirit made from the leftover pressings of Burgundy wine grapes. This creates a moist, golden-red crust and encourages the development of the powerful aroma for which it is known (the smell of God's own feet, say the monks). We love this cheese paired with a sweet Sauternes or Muscatel.
