Marcel Petite uses two aging facilities - one in the old munitions fort called Fort Saint Antoine and the other is Les Granges. Each location offers a specific aging environment which is best suited to cheeses that are hand selected by Claude - the master taster (chef du cave).

Trois Sapins is a brown label Comté which means that it is not selected for substantial aging and is intended to be a simple cheese, eaten when young. Aged about 9 months by the time it arrives at our door, this is a pliant Comté with grassy flavors with hints of walnuts. Trois Spain is our preferred base for the Formaggio Kitchen Fondue.

Marcel Petite

After WWII, Marcel Petite bought an unused munitions fort from the French Government because he felt that it would be the best environment for aging the 70lb wheels of French Gruyère known as Comté. Our first tastes of the Comté in the humid, medieval, cavernous fort brought forth such refined, delicate, and long lasting flavors that we were hooked. After much trust-building with Philipe and Claude, we are able to bring in wheels of Comté from the fruitières that we have found to suit the palate of our customers.
