Comté is a hard cheese that is emblematic of the Jura mountains and the favorite cheese of French people! You can eat Comté absolutely anytime, and any way. It is as appropriate with salami and bread for a quick lunch as it is as an elegant after-dinner treat. 

La petite histoire: It has been produced in the Franche-Comté dairy farms since the 11e century. Called "Vachelin" at that time, it was used as a guard cheese during the long Jura winters. One wheel of Comté cheese was enough to feed a whole family.  Comté is quite similar to Swiss Gruyère; the real difference being that the Swiss allow their cheeses to go to market after only three months, whereas Comté is rarely aged for less than six months and is often aged as long as a year or two (or more!).

Our Comté is awarded AOP ("Appellation d’Origine Protégée", which means Protected Designation of Origin). The AOP mark is the highest distinction awarded by the European Union and confirms the excellence of a product, its artisanship and unimpeachable quality.
