The great French alpine cheese, and the best selling AOC cheese in France, Comte is a marvel. The cheese itself is a marvel of centuries of development in cheese making, made high in the Jura mountains. The cheese has notes of butter, nuts, earth, dried apricots, and cream, with a slight funky note and a saliva-inducing savory-ness. Comte has a faint piquancy, like other alpine cheeses, but it is more subdued than Gruyere. Excellent on a cheese board or grated over vegetables au gratin.

Not a fan of Alpine cheeses. Could taste that flavor come through with the first bite and it lingered a lot. .

Smooth with a little graininess, a grassy musk flavor.

Complex, herbaceous, fruity and nutty
