Considered one of the finest cheeses in the world, a wedge of Comté reveals a pale yellow interior and a firm flexible paste carrying a smooth texture. Comte is a semi-hard cheese made with unpasteurized cow's milk. While this cheese has practically 83 unique flavor notes, the main aromatic flavors of Comté that delicately linger on the palate are a balance of brown-butter and roasted-nut aromas and a sweet finish. Its ability to melt easily means Comté goes well with many recipes right from fondue to Croque Monsieur. The cheese pairs well with Rhone reds, a Palo Cortado, or off-dry Amontillado sherry from Spain.
