Comte Reserve Arnaud AOP Aged 24 Months
In the heart of the Haut Jura is the Charles Arnaud cellar at the iconic Fort des Rousses that accommodates over one hundred thousand wheels in exceptional maturing conditions. This well-aged Comté, like our 24-month Comté Arnaud will display a sumptuous golden-yellow straw colour. The texture is firm and smooth, with a dense, fudgy bite.
The flavour reflects milk that is typical to the Jura flore - sweet, floral, with a distinct brown butter and toasted nut taste. You will also notice the paste is flecked with tyrosine crystals, sometimes referred to as cheese diamonds! These crystals are formed from strands of amino acids during the aging process, and add a toothsome quality to an already addictive, delicious cheese.
