A decadent cow's milk wash rind from the Burgundy region of France. Soumaintrain is aged for roughly six to eight weeks and during this period it is washed regularly with brine and Marc de Bourgogne (yes, the same alcohol that is used to wash Epoisses). Initially, the cheese is brushed with brine, however, during the maturation, the quantity of Marc de Bourgogne is increased. As a result, the cheese has a beautiful orange rind, which conceals the soft and creamy interior.
