A smooth, creamy and nutty mountain cheese – one of the most popular and finest French cheeses. Good intensity of flavour which improves with aging (up to 24 months ). The tasting profile varies according to the soil, climate and flora – in this case the cattle graze on lush pines on the mountain slopes. Recognisable by its beige rind and small intermittent holes, Comte AOC is hand-made to a 1000 year old recipe. During the aging process, each whole cheese has to be turned weekly and rubbed with brine to create a perfect, fine, smooth cheese. A versatile cheese, good for the board, for fondue melting and in general cooking. Also known as Gruyere de Comte or Compte.
