Unique flavours, remarkable maturing in marc de Bourgogne, classic aromas, the sign of great wealth, Époisses Protected Designation of Origin, a soft washed rind cheese, it can be eaten all year long. Simplicity and uniqueness make this cheese an exceptional product. A delicacy on the palate!
Created by a religious order in the heart of Burgundy more than 500 years ago and known as the “king of all cheeses" in the 19th century, Époisses is testimony of long-standing cheese traditions. Recognised with a Controlled Designation of Origin in 1991, its production using whole cow’s milk remains loyal to specific know-how passed on for five centuries by passionate producers.
The richness of the Époisses Protected Designation of Origin sector has as much to do with the quality of the cheese as the dairy professionals’ determination to practice an overall sustainable development policy.
