Essex Comté

Sourced from the Fort St. Antoine in France's Jura Mountains by the Essex Street Cheese based in New York, this is a classic French cheese with a complex, deep flavour. It is made from raw cow's milk and aged for about an year. The complex flavour is well supported by a creamy and buttery finish with a hint of hazelnut. Complimenting this flavour is a nutty aroma like that of a roasted peanut.

This cheese pairs well with Chardonnay, Chateauneuf du Pape making it a memorable combination.
