Considered one of the finest cheeses in the world, Comté originates from the Jura Mountains in the western portion of the French Alps. This mountainous environment is perfect for raising cows, whose milk is used to prepare this cheese.
Comte has a nutty, hazelnut flavor with a semi-sweet finish. It melts wonderfully, making this cheese perfect for risotto and fondue. Due to its versatility, you can prepare this cheese in the main dish or feature it on a cheeseboard. You can also have it for breakfast or nibble on it for dessert. Serve it with champagne, dry white wines, sherry and young red wines.
