The Comté Elegance is a hard cheese made from raw milk from the Jura Mountains. This Comté is matured by the famous Affineur Marcel Petite and has a mellow flavour. In terms of flavour, the 10–14 month Comté (which we often sell up to 16 months) is livelier on the palate due to the higher moisture content in the cheese. By contrast, the Extra Mature Comté at 16 months and beyond – we generally sell it up to 22 months or so – is drier and more crystalline due to proteolysis and has a longer finish. Conversely, it tends to be a little less lively on the palate. Both are superb cheeses, and preference is really down to personal taste


Comté is always one of our most popular cheeses. Our Comté comes from the most celebrated affineur in Franche-Comté, Marcel Petite. This company has been making cheese in the region since the 1840s, and ageing other farmer’s cheeses since 1932. We generally sell two Comtés, both of which are aged in the renowned Fort Saint Antoine in Franche-Comté, some 1,100 metres above sea level. Originally constructed for military purposes in the 1870s, Marcel Petite have been ageing cheese here since 1965. The solid stone walls and cool mountain air of the Fort Sainte Antoine make it an ideal place in which to gently age these enormous cheeses.
