VERY RUNNY, VERY PUNGENT
Very runny - be careful how you etat it, not suitable for men with facial hair. Also more than a bit pungent, which is OK, except that the pungency attaches itslef to everything, clothes, hair, fingers, and calls for a big clean-up immediately afterwards.
Best quality, as good as ou can get in a cheese shop in France
A fine cheese indeed
Surprisingly, Epoisses as its very, very best. Creamy right through, lovely subtle taste, despite the rich aroma(!). Although 'own brand', I know that there are only three or four produces of the proper AC cheese, and this was one of them. A superb cheese. Wine-wise, it requires a red with kick - Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Mercurey, etc. Highly recommended.
