Chabert Tomme de Savoie Cheese

Tomme de Savoie is a rustic farmhouse style cheese from France, with a smooth firm texture and the flavors of mushrooms and milk.


Tomme de Savoie is an excellent example of the many French 'Tomme' cheeses. It is made in the Savoie region and also in the Haute-Savoie near to the Swiss border. 'Tomme' means 'piece' and is a general word for semi-hard cheeses. Tomme de Savoie is made from raw cow's milk, it has a rustic appearance and a distinctive hard, powdery rind with spots varying in color from grey to grey white. The paste is pale ivory to yellow in color, darkening at the rind, supple and with a few small holes scattered through it. The aroma is strongly grassy with ammonia, mushrooms, and caramel. The flavor is somewhat sweet with a fudge taste and a citrus tang; a fine example of French gourmet cheeses of the Savoie region.

Cheesemonger's Note: This fragrant mold rind is brown and often features spots of grey and white mold. After extensive testing we recently changed our cheese wrapping method. You'll see some loose air inside the vacuum-seal: this is intentional and what the cheese likes best. We hope you'll notice improved flavor and shelf life on this delicate cheese.
