Comté A.O.C. is an ancient French gourmet cheese, also known as Gruyere de Comte; it is made in the Massif of the Jura, a region composed of medium range mountains situated in Franche-Comté, which lies between the Vosges and the Haute-Savoie. The Montbeliard cow is the only breed of cattle whose milk is authorized for making Comté.

The cheese is hard, straw-colored, contains some medium-size holes and has a tendency to crack on cutting. Comté has a floral aroma with nutty fudge flavors developing in the more mature cheese. The taste is full of nuts and toffee with a lovely long and salty finish. Older cheeses take on a strong, farmyard-like character. The cheese has a thin beige rind which thickens and hardens as the cheese matures. This cheese is 15 months old and a close cousin of the Beaufort.

We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces.


Ingredients: raw cow's milk, animal rennet, cheese cultures.
