Let's talk Comte

Dating back from the 12th century, Comte is now the largest production of French AOP cheese (51,000 Tonnes annualy). It takes 450 litres of milk to produce a 40kg wheel.
Only the milk of the Montbeliard (95%) and the Simmental (5%)cattles is permitted and each cow must have a least 1 hectare of grazing.
The wheels are made in fruitieres and then bought by the affineurs for maturing.

For further information on Comte, please check out: and

We are delighted to be able to offer the following comtes:

From renowned affineur Marcel Petite:
a 15+ months and a 18+ months matured

And from Cyclamen a 30months old matured
