An incomparable flavour…
Fruity, flowery, mild, spicy…? Sometimes there doesn’t seem to be enough words to describe the infinite variety of flavors and aromas in Comté. Each wheel of Comté is telling us of its past. Its flavors speak of the pastures where the cows grazed, the season in which it was made, the particular craftsmanship of the cheesemaker, the time it spent in the aging cellar… Every wheel has a story, and every story is different.
The taste and texture of Comté changes as it ages. A young Comté generally has aromas of fresh butter, dried apricots and soft caramel, whereas a long-matured Comté will be more fruity, spicy and nutty.
