Epoisses is a strong, musty, wine smelling washed rind cheese. The intense aroma comes about by way of its maturation. The cheese undergoes an intense affinage of five weeks where it is washed three times per week with Marc de Bourgogne diluted  with water, as the cheese matures, more and more Marc is added to the washing solution.

The intense aroma is somewhat reflected in the flavour but surprisingly not as much as you would expect. The fine textured pâté melts in the mouth with a mixture of salty, sweet and milky flavours dominating the palate.
