Comté Cheese

 350 g

The main aromatic flavors of comté that delicately linger on the palate are a balance of brown-butter and roasted-nut aromas and a sweet finish of a blend of fruity and savory with undertones of nutty, smokey, and salty. It has a pale yellow interior, dusty-brown rind, and a texture that can vary from supple, firm, smooth to grainy, crystalline. Shaped in discs measuring between 40-70 cm and 10 cm in height.

Matured between 4-24 months in special caves where it gets the unique texture, color, and taste.

charming cheese
I'm looking forward that this cheese becomes available again. This is my favorite cheese for cooking, creamy with nutty flavor. It looks nice on my cheese board, too.
