Epoisses Coupe is a special cheese. It is the only lactic curd washed rind PDO cheese. Sounds impressive, doesn’t it? But what does all that gibberish actually mean? Basically, all that means is that this cheese requires a very delicate touch throughout the making and aging processes, and that it is cautiously regulated.

Over twenty-eight (or more) days, cheesemakers carefully wash Epoisses in water mixed with marc de Bourgogne, a brandy produced from the leftovers of winemaking. Over the month or so of aging, increasing amounts of marc are added to the water, which helps produce the distinctive orange rind of a washed rind cheese! And that means extra flavor for us!
