Époisses de Bourgogne is made in the Burgundian village of Époisses located halfway between Dijon and Auxerre. A classic washed rind cheese made from the milk of the French Simmenthal, Montbeliarde and Brune breed cows. The rind of this soft cow's milk cheese is washed with marc de Bourgogne, or brandy. This lends a burnt saffron color to the rind and contributes to it's pungent aroma. Don't be turned off by this odorous cheese.
