Essex Street<br>16 month Comte

These beautiful wheels make us so giddy when they roll into the shop. Comte has a long history of supporting the economy of the entire region, with literally hundreds of young cheesemakers working with different farms to create these behemoths. These wheels are hand selected for us by the braintrust at the romantic Fort St. Antoine in the mountains of eastern France, with the help of the lovely folk at Essex St Cheese Co. This cheese is a nutty and grassy treat that is at once sweet and savory, with hints of butterscotch and banana.  Truly a work of art, enjoy with the beverage of your choice, but is a must try with a slightly sherried white from the Jura.
