The Epoisses cheese has a typical and distinctive taste. It is made of full milk, produced in dairy farms approved for the PDO certification and which therefore meet the specifications of the PDO. Cows, stemming from local breeds ("Brune" breed, Montbéliard Cattle or French Simmental), and fed on a basis of fodder exclusively from the original area and GM free, produced high-protein milk.
During a 4 week maturing process, the cheese is regularly hand washed with water in which some Marc de Bourgogne brandy is added.
The rind is of natural colour : it may differ from ivory-orange to brick red colour, depending on the degree of ripening The smell is sharp and with light wood flavours.
The cheese melts in the mouth and its texture is soft. It has a subtle, strong and balanced flavour which leaves a delicious creamy feel in the mouth.
Strength and elegance are met.
