Comté Grand Cru Raw Aged cow Milk
To keep this perishable product at its best, expedited shipping is required
Our relationship also allows us to bring in these limited Grand Cru wheels of Comté that are aged for 30 months. We get these wheels once or twice a year, and they always sell out very quickly. This cheese is a few months younger than the Extra Grand Cru, but still has an exceptionally dense flavor with notes of grilled fruit, nuts and caramel.

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 GruyÃ¨re known as ComtÃ©. Our first tastes of the ComtÃ© 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 ComtÃ© from the fruitiÃ¨res that we have found to suit the palate of our customers.
