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.

Amaaaazing cheese with so much nutty flavor, savory but slightly sweet. Great raw or with crackers especially the thick ones with raisins.
