Petit Gaugry is in essence a miniature version of Fromagerie Gaugry’s Epoisses. Epoisses was invented at the beginning of the 16th century by Cistercian monks and is named after the town where it was first produced. It was imported to the court of the Count of Guitaut, one of Louis XIV's noblemen where it became very fashionable, and was also one of the favourite cheeses of Napolean who adored the wine of Chambertin which marries perfectly with it.

Epoisses was still very popular in the 20th century but its production petered out during the second World War until Monsieur Berthaut from the village of Epoisses began producing it again. On its revival in 1956, Epoisses began to grow again in popularity, and thanks to the cheese makers it succeeded in gaining official recognition in 1991 with the Appellation d'Origine Controlee, now the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO).
