Comté comes from the Gruyere family of cheeses but is a higher grade and thus has a richer flavour which is both nutty and creamy. This Comté has been aged for 22months to give a greater depth of flavour. The complex array of sweet, nutty, floral and herbal notes to be found in Comté is attributed to the cows that supply the milk, and the rich grasslands they roam. Each cow is allotted a hectare of land during summer– ensuring that they all have access to the natural pasture. During the winter the cows are fed on locally harvested hay – strictly no silage as it’s believed that this adversely affects the flavour of the milk.
