Comté Trois Sapins
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 Sapin is our preferred base for the Formaggio Kitchen Fondue.
