Comte Cheese

Discover one of France’s most acclaimed and beloved cheeses, the centuries-old Comte. With its origins in the Jura Mountains, where Montbeliarde cows graze on floral pastures, Comte is produced from milk sourced from small local farms. We love Comte for its fruity, full-bodied flavor characterized by notes of salty caramel. Buttery yet firm, it melts beautifully, making it our favorite for fondue or anything au gratin. Its nutty, earthy flavor develops as it ages, so be sure to try different types of Comte – the minimum aging is four months, but can be aged for over a year – sometimes even two!
