ORIGIN: Poligny, Jura Region, Franche-Comté, France
ANIMAL: Cow STYLE: Hard – . Over 18 months, this cheese develops a firm, dense texture, becoming creamy on the palate. It has subtle floral perfumes, the sweet aroma of caramelised milk, a savoury mouthfeel and delicate zing to finish. It is a winner on a cheeseboard (Comté is the second most consumed cheese in France). Try with wines such as chardonnay blends and big-bodied champagnes.
The caramelized milk flavours are rounded out giving way to aromas of almost vegemite with complex meaty, savoury flavours.
