Comte is one of the world's greatest cheeses, and one of the top consumed cheeses in France - a country that knows good cheese. This one is aged 10 months and aged by Charles Arnaud, who has specialized in Comte production since 1907.
At the heart of the Haut Jura Nature Park, 2700 feet above sea level, the Fort des Rousses accommodates over 100,000 wheels of Comte cheese in exceptional maturing conditions. The Fort des Rousses is France's second-largest fortress, built by Napoleon III, and was converted in 1997 from a military site into maturing cellars, serving the gourmet cheese industry.
This 10 months aged Comte is dynamic, with fruity and savory notes. It's aromatic with a wide range of nuances including notes of nuts, grass, leather and broth.
Comte is endlessly delicious and applicable. Great for eating straight, pairing, or melting. Consider it in fondue, French onion soup, grilled cheese, cheese sauces, scalloped potatoes and more.
