Comte has one of the most complex flavor profiles of any cheese you will enjoy. There are at least 83 noted flavors ranging from meat stock to young grass. Not all Comte is the same, however. This selection is made by renowned French affineur Marcel Petite. Aged between 12 to 16 months, this young Comte is golden in color, rich, sweet and grassy. It has a lingering flavor of butterscotch that coats the palate. Careful aging brings out deep nutty flavors while preserving the sweetness and creamy texture of the paste. Comte is great as a table cheese, but is also delightful when melted into casseroles, gratins or quiche. It also makes an amazing sandwich with Jambon & cornichons.
