History of Comté Aop Tres Grande Garde

During the Middle Ages, milk had been transformed into a cheese called Vachelin, likely to meet with the needs of an entire family during a long cold season. The product longevity, and its « improvement » along the time, made it an exportable product out of regional lines and so likely to procure new resources. Those large wheels require a lot of milk; farmers helped each other for production.

Fabrication

Marcel makes exclusively his Comté with raw cow’s milk. The milk from the two-consecutive milking is poured into copper vats. Milk is then transformed and curdled. This curdle is then heat up at 53- 55°C during 45 minutes. Then, it is extracted, pressed and salted. Maturing of Comté is about 840 days of which the cheese is turned and rubbed regularly.

Tasting advice

Comté is one of the rarest cheeses which can be appreciated at all the stages of a meal, from aperitif to cheese platter. It is particularly suitable for many culinary preparations. Its ability to melt and glaze permits to use it very simply on all gratin meals.

Wine-pairing

Comté is usually served with a slight red wine but also with a dry white wine or champagne.
