Description: Tomme de Savoie is made from raw, skimmed cow's milk left over after the cream has been drained off to make butter. The taste of the cheese varies throughout the year depending on whether the milk is coming from cows eating winter hay or fresh summer grass.
The maturing takes around 2-4 months during which the cheese starts to develop a thick grey rind dotted with patches of yellow or red moulding. Tomme de Savoie is a semi-soft, pressed cheese with a pliable and firm texture. It has numerous irregular "eyes" spread throughout the ivory-coloured paste. The flavours are of grass, nuts and rusticity. Expect some tangy, slight citrusy and mushroom notes underlined by odours of cave.
Serving Tips: A classic cheese on the cheeseboard, it is also best accompanying sausages, fruits and bread.
Weight: Approx. 200g/ piece
Wine Pairing: The cheese pairs best with medium bodied red wines from Cotes du Rhone,
