I just purchased and tried two cheeses from Tower Market (at the top of Portola in SF). One was Clarines made by the Fromagerie des Clarines and the other was Rigotte d'Echalas. The second one comes in a package of two and looks like the mini-Epoisses that are available in various cheese shops and should be as soft. But it is closer to a Langres than an Epoisses, hence not as pungent, although all these cheeses are in the same family. The Clarines is a runny cheese that is to be scooped out of its wooden container. It is very mild, but very good. I recommend both of them.
