Epoisses cheese from Burgundy

epoisses cheese fondue

A recent discovery is a great site all about French cheeses, of which there are over 500 – so you could have a different French cheese every day of the year. However, only 40 of these cheeses are “Appellation Controllée” which like wine, offers spme guarantee of origin, style, content and production process.
Epoisses de Bourgogne AOC is one of those 40 AOC cheeses from Burgundy and is a soft, washed-rind cheese made from Cows Milk (well-chilled evening milk mixed with fresh, warm morning milk). While the cheese is still soft, it is moistened with Marc de Bourgogne, the spirit made from the residues of the wine-making process. It is then cured and soaked again in Marc. Hence it has a lightly alcoholic, delicate yet strong taste, most creamy from July to February.Originating from the village of Epoisses (21 Côte d’Or, Bourgogne), north west of Dijon.
