Maturation: minimum 18 months
Cheese Type: Cooked, Pressed hard cheese
In the past, farmers created the ‘Jura wheels’ to keep the milk longer during winters and allow their families to get a protein source all year long. These wheels were also easier to carry around and to sell. The recipe of the Comté we know nowadays was introduced in the 18th century. Comté has the highest production of all French AOC cheeses. No surprise it is also one of our best sellers! The Comté aged 18 months has a slight fruity taste with a soft and creamy paste. The older the Comté is, the stronger is the flavour, so this one is lighter than the Comté aged 24 months.
Can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 weeks.
Sweet white wines, especially Burgundy (Puligny Montrachet, Meursault)
Dry white wines (Chablis), Vin Jaune from Jura

6 reviews for Comté Extra 18 Months
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.
kelly ng –
A signature Comte cheese in fruit taste.
Marine Vallee –
Fruity and melt-in-the-mouth, love it!
Jenny Shen –
excellent comte as usual!
Reminds me the French mountains and winters, loving it.
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!
