Pont l'Évèque Père Eugène

Being one of the oldest Norman cheeses, the originality of the Pont l’Évèque comes primarily from its square shape. Its rind varies from golden yellow to orange and it has a soft touch that announces a warm and pleasant cheese. The cheese must be neither too dry nor too runny, so it offers creamy and fruity aromas.




Sorted, sometimes brushed then packed in wooden packaging, the Pont l’Eveque continues ripening for 2 to 6 weeks for the whitish rind slowly turns to red.

Tasting tips

Pairing cheese and wine

Pont-Eveque is mainly eaten with red wine, possibly quite powerful. A Morgon or a Côte de Brouilly are perfectly suited to sublimate the flavors.
