Our Comte is the ultimate indulgence, and it is no surprise that it is one of the nation's favourite cheeses. It is similar to Gruyere, but has a lovely grainy texture (developing with maturity) which when combined with the deep rich nutty sweetness reminds you of eating toffee or milk chocolate. It doesn't have some of the fruity tang you get with a Gruyere, but rather just deep rich burnt nutty caramel-style sweetness. We know most of our cheese groupies will have tried a fair few Comtes before, but we source ours from the best in the biz, and always with summer milk...so give us a go and see the difference. True cheesy heaven!

Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee.

If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your cheesegeek delivery!
