Description

The story of Comté is one of men deeply attached to their centuries-old heritage of cheesemaking and to their remarkable land in the Jura Mountains. For five generations, the Petite family refined their particular method of aging and caring for Comté.

Like wine and spirits Masters, the Marcel Petite cellar Masters are subtly leading the affinage of each Comté wheel by searching continuously for its best expression. In the spirit of Marcel Petite, they use all of their senses to bring about the finest Comté.

Interdependent farmers, cheese makers, and affineursin the Jura Mountains produce the 40kg Comte wheels from the cows milk for over 200 years.

Comté Reserve is matured for a minimum of 18 months in the Fort Saint Antoine, a defunct military fort in a forest of Haut Doubs, at 3,600 feet altitude: the perfect place to age Comté in its natural environment, near the mountain cheese dairies where it’s made.
