Considered one of the world's greatest cheeses Comté captures the essence of raw, mountain pasture-fed cows' milk. These impressive wheels exemplify the sweetness of cooked milk, with notes of stone fruit and the quiet nuttiness of browned butter. Ideal for any cooking application, and classically melted in everything from fondue to Croque Monsieur.
Comte's sweetness comes indirectly from the sun. It is made with milk from Alpine cows who have feasted on the rich green pastures of Jura. The greener the grass, the sweeter the milk, and in the Jura they never bother to look over the fence, grass can't get any greener than this!
