Comté is a French cheese produced in the Jura Massif region of Eastern France. It is the most popular cheeses in France with around 40,000 tones of annual production. Considered one of the finest cheeses in the world, a wedge of Comte reveals a pale yellow interior and a texture that can vary from silky and smooth to grainy. Aged for around 3 years, this cheese develops crispy crystals called, Tyrosine and it's flavour is much stronger than 24 month Comte. At this age, the Comte is definitely for a particular taste and will not please all palettes.

    COMTE AOP 36 MONTHS

    Posted by Relanda Bartz-Jennings on 11th Feb 2022

    I love raw milk cheeses, they are just in a class all of their own. I used to buy ones from the Swiss Alpine areas but the Comte AOP 36mths has become my new favourite. I love the little crunchy crystals that sometimes form in the cheese, you can see them as tiny white flecks in the photo - I know there is a fancy name for them but I don't know it - they contrast with the smooth cheese and add a hint of saltiness. This is a truly delicious cheese.
