Made in a tiny town in the Burgundy region of France, Epoisses by Berthaut is one of the great cheeses of the world. It is a name-controlled cheese that has a very pungent aroma and rich, creamy interior. Each cheese is covered in an edible reddish-brown coating, and underneath that, a creamy, white interior with a delightfully daunting aroma that comes straight from the farm.
