$17.99/Lb


Tomme means smallish, roundish cheese, and is usually combined with the region or town of origin. In this case, you're munching a raw, cows milk wheel from France's mountainous eastern region of Savoie in the Rhone Alpes. It has been lightly pressed for a semi-soft texture and aged from 2-4 months. It's a mountain staple made from the skimmed milk left over from butter making and it radiates a rustic, earthy, simplicity. Expect some tang, along with strong wet straw and either vegetal or dried fruit aromas depending on seasonal Alpine grazing conditions. Enjoy with Crozes Hermitage.
