Comté’s paste is smooth and dense, occasionally it may have “eyes” or small holes. The color of the cheese is determined by the season in which it was produced; Comté produced in warmer months, when the cows are on pasture, will be more yellow in appearance, while Comté produced in cold months, when cows are fed locally harvested hay, will be paler.
Selected wheels of Comte are on aged for 30 months, more often that not these are the wheels produced in the summer months. Carefully graded at the end of the maturation process only the best are branded as “Plenitude”
