(KOM-tay) is an ancient French cheese, produced since the time of Charlemagne. Comté is still traditionally made in more than 190 cheese dairies, known as the "fruitières" in the Jura plateau. Comté requires a long maturing period. During this period of affinage, its rind becomes a golden yellow to brown and hardens, and the interior develops a very deep, complex, and long-lasting flavor. The flavor is always creamy, buttery, with notes of hazelnuts. Comte is well paired with Chardonnays from California. Rhone valley reds such as Chateauneuf du Pape.
