Époisses is a soft washed-rind Cow cheese from the village Époisses in Burgundy.
Époisses has a powerful flavor with a funky odor, a mouth watering taste of sweet, salty and creamy milk. The rind is regularly washed in Grape Pomace to add complexity and taste.
Pomace is the remains of grapes, olives, or other fruit after being pressed for juice or oil. It contains the skins, pulp, seeds, and stems of the fruit.
