Marcel Petite Comte - 2 Year

$34.99/LB
Frankly, a fantastic cheese. Aged in the Fort Saint Antoine in Jura, this Comte is produced by one of 13 high altitude cooperatives ("Fruitiers") approved by affineur Marcel Petite. This Comte is aged for 2 years, which is the longest the affineur will age any cheese. The enormous wheels of raw cows' milk have a firm texture, leaving flavors that can range from dense, with hints of smoke and onions, to sweeter, with notes of chocolate and hazelnuts.
