Description

Part of our Summer Cheese Selections

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 Philippe and Claude, we are able to import the wheels of Comté that we have found to suit the palate of our customers.  This cheese is from the high altitude Jura region in southeastern France. The Montbéliard cows graze on meadows teeming with pissenlit, or wild dandelion.

Comté Fort Saint-Antoine is aged 10-14 months for a dense, creamy texture and fruity flavor. It is a staff favorite and a staple on any cheese plate.
