Comte AOP Marcel Petite 12 month
by Marcel Petite Fort St. Antoine. Product of France.
We think it is the best Comte. This Comte is made by Marcel Petite - the creamery which defined the look and profile of Comte we know now. Before these guys, Comte looked like Emmental - with big holes/eyes. This particular Come was aged in a special place as well - old fort St. Antoine. Aromas of hazelnuts, fried onions and spring berries shine over an undercurrent of cut grass, wet earth, and straw. There is a humble, everyday perfection in these wheels; herbaceous and fruity, and kissed with deep, heavy cream.
Aged for a minimum of 12 month.
Ingredients: fresh part-skim cow's milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes. CONTAINS: MILK
We ship perishable items in thermo-insulated cardboard boxes with reusable ice packs to insure that you food items arrive in good shape.
All cheeses we slice to order and wrap in cheese paper as we want you to enjoy original flavor of cheese - not damaged by vacuum or plastic.
All meats which require slicing we slice to order and lay it out on wax paper (deli-style) so it is easy to separate slices. Then we pack it in a plastic pouch with nitrogen purge (again, to make it easy to separate pieces we don't vacuum the meats but use commercial style food grade inert gas mix).

Just a great comte with very subtle tyrosine crystals. Life is better when some of this is in your fridge.
