Aged 4 - 8 months, this petite cheese is buttery and smooth like Capriole’s Old Kentucky Tomme, but nuttier and firmer like a Tomme du Savoie. In her latest incarnation, Julianna’s mushroomy rind is punctuated by Herbes de Provence, calendula petals, and safflower petals. She boasts a beguilingly feminine appearance and an aromatic finish on the palate, reminiscent of the flavors of Spring.

After the glowing recommendation from our local cheese monger, not to mention the insanely high price tag, I was sure this cheese would be incredible. My Wife and I were both very disappointed. The flavor in our opinion was overly earthy and all-around, an unremarkable choice. I give the Julianna two stars, only because it was visually appealing.
