Epoisses cheese is a soft cow’s milk cheese produced by Jacques Hennart in the village Époisses, France. The cheese has creamy, chewy and firm texture. With a distinctive soft red-orange colour, it is categoried as a smear-ripened cheese washed in Brandy. It takes at least 6 weeks to mature fully. Despite its pungent smell, the cheese has a spicy, sweet and salty flavour.
