There are records of Epoisses being made as long ago as the 16th Century, by monks close to the village of Époisses in Burgundy, but the cheese gradually died out. It was eventually revived in the 1950s. The rediscovery of this glorious cheese was rewarded by the award of an AOC Protected Designation Origin in 1991. 

The cheese has a spicy, pungent aroma. When the edges start to collapse away from the sides of the wooden box, the Epoisses is ready to eat. The interior will have ripened to a silky smooth sometimes even liquid texture; and the flavour will have developed to a full, meaty, spicy richness, with an edge of sweetness. Colourants are strictly forbidden by the AOC, so the colour of the rind will vary during the season.
