In 1131, the incumbent monks in the Savoie Mountains at Tamié Abbey produce a cheese that is pretty similar to the popular Reblochon.
The cheese is subjected to regular washed in brine during the aging process.
After which, it is sold in blue paper decorated with the iconic cross of Malta.
Abbaye de Tamié Tasting Notes
Abbaye de Tamié is an orange-colored semi-soft, washed rind cheese with thin leathery crust and supple springy texture on the inside.
The cheese taste mild, milky, a little fruity and nutty sweetness with a hint of hay and fresh cream.
How to Enjoy (PAIRING)
Abbaye de Tamié is a good additional to almost every type of cheeseboard that you can think of.
It goes best with light fruity red wine and rosé Savoie wine such as Apremont or Mondeuse. Most white wines are excellent choices too.
Never go full-bodied and hard liquor with this cheese as the alcohol will overwhelm the taste of the cheese.
