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!

This exceptional Comté is designed for the most discerning palate. This cheese worthy of the greatest stars has lost water and crystallized, revealing fine, delicious amino acid crystals on the palate. After twenty-four months of maturing, the texture of Comté cheese becomes smoother, associated with rich, persistent aromas of walnuts, roasted almonds, melted butter and spices, softened by notes of mature cream.

Our Comté 24 months will reveal all its aromas on a cheese board with white or black grapes, dried fruit or nuts.

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.

  5. Reine Leung

    Great cheese

  6. Cynthia Lian

    A must-buy product. High quality at reasonable price.
    The 24m version goes better with bread, burger, wines or simply as a snack, while the 30m or 36m maybe better for pairing bold red wines.

  7. Hyunsoo Lee Fouque

    Repeatedly ordered this throughout the year- happy with 18/24 months…
    I wouldn’t go beyond 36 months though…gets very crumbly and salty
