Matured for up to a year and a half – twice the length of standard Comte – the cheese is also studded with salt crystals to give it an additional texture.

Characteristics: the familiar nutty flavour but sweeter and with salty kick; firmer texture.

Best with: this is the go-to cheese if you want to make a souffle.
