Comté

Ensuring that the milk is as fresh as possible, the milk for making Comté isn’t allowed to travel more than 20 Kms from where the cows are milk.

Cheese Profile

FLAVOUR Full flavoured
TASTE A rich flavour of nuts with grassy notes. Older wheels have a fruity finish.
SMELL Nutty, with a herbal, fruity essence.
RIND Natural crust, rubbed in a morge solution to encourage rind development.
INTERIOR Supple and dense, with protein crystals scattered throughout when aged for over a year. The colour is dark golden yellow turning almost tan towards the edges.
FABULOUS Dry, firm and dense, with few or no cracks.
FAR-GONE Slight pink colouration on the edges; a damp tacky rind that sticks to your fingers with a strong ammonia smell.

Best way to enjoy
A vital part of French cooking or cheese plates, Comté adds an amazing depth of flavour to a fondue or grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough bread.
