About this Promotion

If we were a cheese, we would be an Epoisses. This is an awesomely pungent monster that has to be tried by everyone!

Époisses is a commune in the Côte-d’Or department in eastern France, halfway between Dijon and Auxerre. The village is known for its native cheese, Époisses de Bourgogne, a pungent unpasteurized cows-milk cheese.

The Epoisses’s bright orange rind has a distinctive farmyard aroma that is the perfect match for the soft, salty paste beneath. The flavour is extraordinary, somehow managing to be strong, sweet and milky all at the same time. In ideal condition, Epoisses should be almost liquid under the rind with a fine, chalky coeur (heart) running through the middle of the cheese.
