Comte 'Marcel Petite' Portion 200g
The story of Comte is one of men deeply attached to their centuries-old heritage of cheesemaking and to their remarkable land in the Jura Mountains. For five generations, the Petite family refined their particular method of aging and caring for Comte.
Interdependent farmers, cheese makers, and affineurs do their utmost every day to carry on the values of this cheese and bring it from the mountains to your table; a traditional production model based on lifelong exchanges, respect, and trust.
This Comte is matured for more than 12 months in the Fort Lucotte, a defunct military fort in a forest of Haut Doubs, at 3600 feet altitude: the perfect place to aged Comte in its natural environment, near the mountain cheese dairies where it’s made. Its ability to melt easily means Comté goes well with many recipes right from fondues to Croque Monsieur.
