Comté Cheese  
A popular French cheese made from the milk of Montbeliard cows, raised in the Franche-Comte region of France. Certified with a European A.O.C. ranking, this cheese is brine cured as it matures after being produced. A rough outer rind that is tan to gray in color surrounds a firm-textured meat that provides a mildly sweet aroma of fruit to flowers or grasses of the area in which the cows graze. Nutty to slightly tangy in flavor, Comte cheese is a good cheese for snacking or for adding to salads and sandwiches. It is also a good cheese for fondues.
