Comté AOP

We stock a wonderful Gruyère de Comté in a couple of different maturations

 

Comté Extra Vieux is matured for around 14 months, think classic milky notes with a rounded tomato soup savoury quality. An excellent Gruyère for the kitchen and a mellow addition to your cheeseboard

 

Comté Prestige is aged for a minimum of 36 months, becoming richer and spicier with age, the rough rind, pitted b the activity of cheese mites, adds to the complexity of the flavour profile. This well aged example has a superb flavour with develops and changes on the palate for many minutes, a truly incredible cheese

  • Our suggestion

    Tiny shards of the intense Prestige Comté brings a depth to a fresh salad or a new dimension to bresaola and rocket. Bourgogne-Franche-Comté has an excellent sparkling wine, Crémant du Jura Blanc, which makes a surprising partner for such a rich cheese
