Comté AOP Rivoire & Jaquemin 18 months 1,2kg
This product is currently sold out.
Considered one of the finest cheeses in the world, a wedge of Comte reveals a pale yellow interior and a texture that can vary from silky, flabby to crystalline.
There are practically 83 flavours, which can be savoured while tasting Comté. But the main aromatic flavours that delicately linger on the palate are a balance of brown-butter and roasted-nut aromas and a sweet finish.
Its ability to melt easily means Comté goes well with many recipes right from fondues to Croque Monsieur. The cheese pairs well with Rhone reds, a Palo Cortado or off-dry Amontillado sherry from Spain.
This was the second time I ordered from Gourmet de Paris, and I can easily say this is my go to place to get cheese and cold cuts (ok, lava cake too :p). The website is very user friendly and after submitting my order, someone contacted me the next day to follow up and check on delivery details.
Even though we couldn't pay with credit card, for some technical issue I guess; the staff told me I could make a transfer after receiving my order, so everything went smooth and nice.
Products come well packaged and all of them are pretty good quality for very reasonable price.
