Comté 12 months AOP (raw milk)
Comté was one of the first few cheeses to receive an AOC (Appellation d’origine contrôlée) status in 1958. It is one of the most popular AOC cheeses in France with around 40,000 tons of annual production.
Considered one of the finest cheeses in the world, a wedge of Comte reveals a pale yellow interior and a texture that can vary from silky, flabby to crystalline.
There are practically 83 flavours, which can be savored while tasting Comté. But the main aromatic flavours that delicately linger on the palate are a balance of brown-butter and roasted-nut aromas and a sweet finish.
