Franche-Comte & French Alps
Fudge, Butterscotch, Toasted Hazelnuts
Gruyere, Alpine Cheese
Our Comte is the ultimate indulgence, and it is no surprise 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, so give us a go and see the difference. True cheesy heaven!
TCG Top Tip: Goes great with an un-oaked Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc or Viognier
