Description

Made with raw cow’s milk from the Jura Mountain region, Comté is one of the most popular cheeses in France. It is matured for a minimum of 4 months, which encourages its rich, nutty and earthy flavours. The cheese is carefully monitored to ensure the coveted Comté label is only applied to the very best. A chunky, oaked Chardonnay is a great option if you like a glass of wine with your cheese. 

 

Pairing Recommendations

A nice accompaniment to a traditional Comté is an Arbois, a white wine from Jura. Another match would be a chunky oaked Chardonnay.
