About Époisses Edit
Wikipedia Article About Epoisses on Wikipedia
Époisses de Bourgogne is a cheese made in the village Époisses found in the commune of Côte-d'Or, a département of France. It is located around halfway between Dijon and Auxerre.
Commonly referred to as Époisses, is a pungent unpasteurized cows-milk cheese. A washed-rind cheese, it is circular at around either 10cm or 18cm in diameter with a distinctive soft red-orange colour. It is sold in a circular wooden box, and is best served with a good red Burgundy wine, or even Sauternes.
Napoleon was a particular fan of the cheese, and the famous epicure Brillat-Savarin himself classed it as the "king of all cheeses".
