Marcel Petite Comte 24 months
Since the reign of Charlemagne, unpasteurized cow's milk has been used to make French cheese in Eastern France (Franche Comte Area). More than 190 cheese factories, referred to as "fruitieres," on the Jura plateau, continue to make this cheese the old-fashioned way. Comte has a flavor that is nuanced, nutty, and caramelized. It is excellent as an appetizer and can be grated, chopped, or melted.
