Comte au Lait Cru 12mth (WA & QLD)

milk typeCow
tasting noteComte is a type of Gruyere and similar to several of the large mountain cheeses that are made in Alps on the borders of France and Switzerland. These originally took their name from the forests knows as ‘gruyeres’ which were once used as fuel to heat the copper cauldrons of curd. We select our cheeses only from affineur Marcel Petite who mature the young wheel’s under a cold maturation system at 1,100 metres at the old underground fort of Saint Antoine. These cheeses are made at the small day of Tres Major in the Jura and after careful grading are ripened for at least 12 months. They have a concentrated nutty texture and gentle honey sweet flavour, reflecting the rich milk of the montbeliard cows that graze the natural mountain pastures.
