After WWII, Marcel Petite bought an unused munitions fort from the French Government because he felt that it would be an ideal environment for aging his 70lb wheels of French Gruyère known as Comté.  And it is. 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 import the wheels of Comté that we have found to suit the palate of our customers.

Every year we are given an allocation for the rare 36 month old Comte which we call the Extra Grand Cru.  This cheese has an exceptionally dense flavor with notes of grilled fruit, nuts and caramel.  For more information on Marcel Petite and his wonderful Comte, please visit https://www.formaggiokitchen.com/travelogues/france/jura
