In the past, farmers created the ‘jura wheels’ to keep the milk longer during the winter and have this protein source all year long for all their family. These wheels were easier to carry around and to sell. The recipe of the Comte we know nowaday was introduced in the XVIII century. This 40 months aged Comté from Fromagerie Brun is a rare and luxury product featuring caramelly and roasted nuts aromas. It’s paste has a crumbly texture with salty cristals. The older the Comté, the stonger the flavour, so this Comté is more intense than the Comté aged for 24 or 30 months.

    One of my favourite comtes. 40 months is truly the perfect sweet spot for me – salty and intense, but not too crumbly. This is a great addition in quiches and savoury galettes.

    Intensely flavorful. Not too crumbly
