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.
Due to the highly diverse pastures of the mountain land on which the cows graze, Comté can change remarkably between different wheels, however we always find a unique intense nutty depth.
Sometimes classics are so for a reason. Ours is aged 18 months to deepen the flavour and allow some crystals to develop.
Comté’s ability to melt easily means it goes well with many recipes right from fondues through to Croque Monsieur. This cheese pairs well with Cotes du Rhone reds or an off-dry Amontillado sherry from Spain.
