Arguably one of the greatest cheeses on earth, Comté is an unpasteurized cow’s milk cheese made deep in the Jura mountains that delivers complex flavors of nuts, browned butter, grass, toffee, and more. The Comté that we carry at the store is strictly from Marcel Petit, one of the greatest affineurs in the world. The best wheels of cheese are selected at cooperatives by Marcel and then aged in an old World War II bunker at Fort Saint Antoine. Come try the 10-15 month and experience a creamy, buttery, “utterly” pleasing cheese or try the 16-24 month that is loaded with crystals and delivers flavors of grilled almonds, browned butter, caramel and more…Single-layered Chapel Length Bridal Veil with Scattered Beaded Guipure Tulle Lace Applique Edge

Pair this with a glass of Fendant wine from Switzerland, Jacquere or Rousette de Savoie white wine from Savoie and you have the makings for a superb meal…We currently stock all of the ingredients necessary for this delicious meal including the Raclette machines, unless of course you feel like heating the cheese in front of the wood fire!

Cider, Sidre, Cidre-we have a variety of styles and offerings ranging from light and crisp to full bodied and fruity and from slightly sweet to earthy and barnyardy. We feel that cider is a classic pairing with a lot of fall foods including poultry, nuts, and especially cheese. Pairing hard cider with blue cheese is a superb match as it is with cheddar and pungent aromatic cheeses such as Camembert, Pont-L’Évêsque, and Livarot from Normandy-France’s cidre capital.
