Comté cheese has been produced for a very long time. The first indications of this cheese date back more than 2000 years: it was much appreciated in Rome, especially by Julius Caesar. In the Middle Age, producers began to band together to form dairy cooperatives known as ‘fruitières’. This made it easier to produce large Comté cheeses. The cheese’s protein content made it easier to get through the winter. Nowadays, Comté has the highest production of all French AOC cheese, it is also one of our best sellers!

The favourite of the French, Comté aged 18 months is deliciously fruity. This one has developed small crystals of tyrosine which will give a powerful taste to your cheese.
This Comté is sure to please as an aperitif, ideally on cereal or nut bread served with a yellow wine or a white Burgundy.

Can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 weeks. Take it out of the refrigerator an hour before serving it at the table to taste all its flavours.

  1. Rain

    Promising quality, love this for snacks and appetizers

  2. Roanna Kong

    Just average compared to similar Comtes I had at in France (I had the September monthly order).

    Long creamy finish, but low in complexity – none of the fruity flavors mentioned by previous reviewers. I prefer the complexity of the 1000 days aged Gouda which was not too salty despite the age.

  3. kelly ng

    A signature Comte cheese in fruit taste.

  4. Marine Vallee

    Fruity and melt-in-the-mouth, love it!

  5. Jenny Shen

    excellent comte as usual!

  6. Badet

    Reminds me the French mountains and winters, loving it.

  7. Mr. P (verified owner)

    A big classic, fruity notes and strong at the same time. The type of hard cheese you give your kids for snack at school!
