Comte, Raw Milk, ~9# $/#
Unlike most Comté imported to the U.S., we choose our wheels based on a flavor, not on age or price. We take into account the time the cheese travels so it comes to you tasting like it should. The Comté we select from Marcel Petite’s Fort St. Antoine aging cave will arrive at a point of ripeness where all the cheese’s beguiling flavors have come to life. Aromas of hazelnuts, fried onions and spring berries shine over an undercurrent of cut grass, wet earth, and straw. There is a humble, everyday perfection in these wheels; herbaceous and fruity, and kissed with deep, heavy cream. This is a cheese for eaters, it has you always reaching for more.
