Cow's Milk Cheese

🧀 Description:
Tarentaise, a cow's milk cheese hailing from the Tarentaise Valley in the French Alps, boasts a smooth, semi-firm texture and a pale yellow hue beneath its rustic, natural rind. This artisanal cheese exudes a delightful nuttiness, a testament to the alpine pastures where the cows graze.

👄 Tasting Notes:
With each velvety bite, Tarentaise unfolds a symphony of flavors—mildly fruity and buttery, underscored by subtle hints of hazelnut and grass. Its lingering nutty finish adds a touch of complexity to the overall experience.

🍷 Suggested Wine Pairings:
Pair this Alpine gem with a medium-bodied red wine like a Pinot Noir or a Chardonnay with a touch of oak. The red's fruitiness complements the cheese's nutty notes, while the Chardonnay's buttery texture harmonizes with the cheese's own creamy richness. For an authentic Alpine experience, try it with a crisp, dry Riesling to enhance the nuanced flavors of Tarentaise.
