Epoisses is the cheese that made Gaugry cheese makers famous. Washed with Marc de Bourgone, it has a floral aroma, with a shiny and slightly wrinkled rind. Once aged it can be quite pungent with a smooth creamy texture.
The Epoisses Gaugry has a slightly wrinkly appearance and the colour varies from ivory with orange hints to brick red and will depend principally on the maturing, with the use of any colourants being strictly forbidden. The cheese itself is pale beige in colour, with a smooth and creamy texture.

The Fromagerie Gaugry began producing Epoisses cheese in 1970. This cheese, which originated in the Auxerois region in the heart of Burgundy, was created in the 16th century by Cistercian monks. These monks gave the knowledge of how to produce this washed rind soft cheese to the women of the region, which is why writings on the subject refer to “fermières” (lady farmers).
Today the Fromagerie Gaugry still specialises in the production of Epoisses, and its successors perpetuate the familial and regional cheese making tradition while at the same time expanding and modernising production. They are the last cheese makers still producing raw milk Epoisses. Thus the Fromagerie Gaugry promotes one of the most flavoursome Burgundian cheeses thanks to their perfectly mastered know-how.
