Comté, one of France’s most famous cheeses, is also one of the most snackable. Murray’s 18 Month Aged Comté, with its surprisingly supple texture and rich flavors of dried fruit, brown butter, and hazelnut, is sure to become your go-to afternoon treat. Its light, grassy essence and subtle hint of citrus will pair well with a fruit spread like Blackberry Farm Blackberry Jam. Then again, why not celebrate this outstanding cheese with a glass of your favorite Champagne.

"When I first heard of this cheese, I tried it for the history aspect. It is aged for 18 months in Fort de Rousses, a repurposed stone military fort commissioned by Napoleon in the 1800s. However, it became a staple in my fridge for the taste. This cheese is great, especially on a crisp layered in jam. However, I prefer to eat it all on it’s own… tasty bite by tasty bite."

  • Comté is an AOC-protected cheese. AOC stands for “Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée” or Controlled Designation of Origin. This label ensures that the food is made according to its traditions. It has to be produced in a certain region, according to specific processes, and packaged in a specific way.
  • Comté has been made for more than one thousand years in the Jura mountains, on the French-Swiss border.
  • The cheese is crafted from the milk of Montbéliarde cows from small farms that stretch across the Franche-Comté region.
When you receive your cheese, unpack the order and refrigerate the items. We recommend using the cheese paper we send most of our products in to store the cheese. The cheese paper helps cover the items and stop them from drying out, while also allowing the cheese to breathe. Since cheese is mold, it's a living thing! If you cut off air circulation to the cheese, you can actually cause it to suffocate and spoil at a faster rate.
  • With deep roots in Poligny, France, at the foot of the Jura mountains, Fromageries Arnaud's operations date back to 1907.
  • The original owner, Charles Arnaud, would park his truck in front of the famed Café de Flore in Paris in the 1930s. It was there that he came up with the name for his Comté—Juraflore.
  • The business is now run by Jean-Charles Arnaud, Charles’ grandson.
  • Their renowned Comté cheese get a taste of history, too. They're aged in the Fort des Rousses, France’s second-largest fortress, which was transformed into aging cellars in 1997.
