History : The Tommette de Sauvain is a creation of Hubert Tarit, slightly twisted by Hervé Mons, so it is a four-handed production.

The idea is to make a soft, even creamy cheese with a fresh hazelnut taste. The technology used is not unlike that of Reblochon, but the taste is different. This cheese is rubbed and matured in salted water for 3 weeks. The ideal tasting is after 6 weeks of maturing.
