Comté is a cheese of concentrated flavour, with brown-butter and roasted-nut aromas and a sweet finish.
Jura wines from Comté's home region are a classic pairing for this unique cheese, but other wines that have some texture and are of comparable intensity also enhance Comté's unique flavour characteristics; a Palo Cortado or off-dry Amontillado sherry from Spain are perfect.
Explore the flavours
There are no less than 83 flavours that can be encountered when tasting Comté. We've created a flavour wheel to make recognising them as easy as possible and they're grouped into six aromatic families: milk, fruit, roasted, plant, animal and spice.
And, because of its ability to melt easily it can be added to all sorts of mouth watering recipes and not just saved for the cheese board.
