Taste Notes

Epoisses is soft and very creamy and it lends itself to being spread onto fresh, crusty bread. The Epoisses has a very intense aroma but a sweet and subtle flavor. It is a favourite of stinky-cheese lovers everywhere! Take to it with a spoon, not a knife, and scoop out the oozing paste.

Pairings

The Epoisses is well matched with strong red wines and spicy whites.
