COMTE, FRENCH GRUYERE CHEESE. AGED 1 YEAR. 7.5 OZ
Comté – an ancient French Gruyère style cheese from the Jura mountains – is a staple in any French household for both cooking and snacking. Made from unpasteurized cow’s milk, this sizable wheel is aged for at least one year to ensure an authentic sweet mountain flavor. When made with summer milk, it tastes fruity, and with winter milk, it takes on a pronounced nutty flavor. Comté is cleaned and rubbed with brine during its aging process. This cheese can be grated, shredded, diced, or melted. The “eyes” in the pâte are the result of careful maturing. This cheese is a natural match for a red Burgundy. Made in France.
