With a strong aroma and a full-bodied flavor, some say Pont l’Évêque smells like a whiff of the Norman countryside.
With buttery, savory flavors and hints of tangy fruit, Pont-l'Évêque is similar to Livarot and is an excellent choice to serve before or after a meal. Enjoy Pont-l'Évêque with Champagne, medium-bodied whites, hard cider, or apple brandy.
