Cheese: Tarentaise

Tarentaise

Tarentaise

Vermont Tarentaise has been made by John Putnam from organic cow’s milk at Thistle Hill Farm in Vermont since July 2002. Based on the Alpage-style cheese Abondance, Tarentaise is fairly firm and aged for at least six months. The flavor is grassy, nutty and buttery; as the wheels age in our caves, the flavor becomes more assertive. Tarentaise was awarded the prestigious honor of “Best Farmstead Cow’s Milk Cheese” at the 25th American Cheese Society Conference and, with over 45% butterfat, makes a perfect melting cheese as well! Medium-bodied, fruity red wines pair well with this cheese – try it with Rich Pinot Noir or Velvety Cabernet Sauvignon.
