About the manufacturer:
The Seignemarting family has been producing and aging Comte cheeses for three consecutive generations in the city of Nantua in the French Jura Mountains. The manufacturing and aging of Comte AOP cheese requires special expertise. These qualities ensure a stringent aging process developed by the Seignemartin family over generations.
About the product:
Hard Comte cheese is a protected brand. Preserving the rules of the brand ensures the high quality of the cheese year after year. This cheese is made only in this area on the outskirts of the French Jura Mountains called Franche Comte. It comes from the milk of Montblliarde cows, which graze freely and eat the local plants that grow in the Jura Mountains. The result is a cheese with a unique taste and aroma appreciated all over the world.
The best way to eat this cheese is on its own, enjoying its unique aroma and flavor. It can also be used in sandwiches with rustic bread, a fresh slice of cucumber and some high quality French butter, accompanied by a glass of good cabernet sauvignon.
