Comté Le Fort Raw French cow Milk Cheese
To keep this perishable product at its best, expedited shipping is required
Our relationship also allows us to bring in the highly guarded "Le Fort" wheels of Comté that are aged from 16 to 18 months. It is in these wheels that you find a smooth, creamy texture, and a dense, sweet flavor with hints of fennel, onion and sometimes cocoa butter. As the cheese ages, small crunchy protein crystals can form, adding to the texture! This is a staff favorite and a staple on any cheese plate.

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.
