Brands » Imported Cheese » Comte Cheese (12 Month)
Comte is aged 6 months to a year. It takes as many as 530 Liters of milk, which is about the daily production of 30 cows, all to make 1 wheel of Comte, which weighs approximately 80 pounds. The cheese is regularly wiped and rubbed with brine to encourage the development of the rind mold. The eyes of the Comte are the result of proper affinage and should be the size of a pea to a small cherry.
