Comté is a big size cheese with hard paste. It was born as a solution for the preservation of the milk, which was plentiful during the summer but scarce during the long winter. To produce a wheel of Comté are needed 500 liters of milk. Marcel Petite gathers 36 producers of Comté in his fort. Every 3 months takes place a tasting session in order to identify which wheels should continue the aging and which ones should be shipped to the sale.
Ingredient: Raw cow's milk
Taste: The taste is sweet with an harmonic sapidity and aromatic and fruity notes, among which stands out the walnut
