La Couronne Fort-Aged Comte 24mth (Jura, Franche-Comté)


Made from unpasteurised cows’ milk this cheese was matured in the damp underground cellars of Marcel Petite at Fort Saint Antoine, high in the mountains that border France & Switzerland in the Franche – Comté. It is specially selected to wear the prestigious red ‘crown’ of quality on the basis of its rich concentrated nutty texture, elegant caramel sweetness, & lingering kaleidoscope of flavours – rather than on how long it was aged.

Served with truffle honey and cereals and molasses bread
