Flavour Profile: Due to the highly diverse pastures of the mountain land on which the cows graze, Comté cheese can change remarkably between different wheels, however we always find a unique intense nutty depth. Ours is aged 18 months to deepen the flavour and allow some crystals to develop.
Drink Pairing: This cheese pairs well with Cotes du Rhone reds or an off-dry Amontillado sherry from Spain. Yum!
About the Maker: Comté, named after the region in which it is produced, Franche-Comte, has been produced in small cooperative dairies for many generations. Each Comté produced is inspected and awarded a score out of 20. Those scoring 15 or more are given a green label to signify that they are Comté extra; we only offer Comté extra.
How to Enjoy: Comté’s ability to melt easily means it goes well with many recipes right from fondues through to Croque Monsieur!
