Tomme Fermier d'Alsace
Tomme Fermier d'Alsace is a firm, washed-rind (smear-ripened) cow's milk cheese made in the Alsace region of France. We receive this cheese into our caves and continue the maturing process for an additional two to four months, washing each wheel several times with a light fruity Alsatian wine. This dramatically accentuates the lactic flavors and helps it develop long, fruity notes with hints of mushrooms, grasses and butter. Tomme Fermier d'Alsace complements regional varietals such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer.
Each cheese comes with a fromager note (describing the cheese with beverage pairing suggestions) and a cheese serving tag identifying its name, origin and milk type.
