Comté 18 Months
Our 18 month Comté (pronounced Cohm-tay) comes from Marcel Petite, who is located in the hilly French Jura town of Haut Doubs. In 1966, Marcel Petite bought an old military fort called Called Fort Saint Antoine to mature cheeses they get from different “fruitiere”, where milk is collected from different farmers and made. At an altitude of 1100m, the fort is covered by a thick layer of soil that provides ideal conditions for slow maturing (affinage lent).
Our 18 month Comté ‘Reservation’ is a summer milk cheese, making its paste yellow (winter Comte generally has a whiter paste) and silky and the rind a light brown. On the palate it is fruity and lightly salted, with an aftertaste that has notes of passion fruit and warm butter. Comte is great to gratinate, on top of an onion soup or in a toastie as part of a mix.
