16 – 24 months ripening. Orders must be placed well in advance. Dairy production. As its name already suggests, the Comté Saint Antoine, arguably the most famous Comté, is ripened for 16 to 24 months in the Saint Antoine Fortress close to Pontarlier at an altitude of 1000 metres. This is certainly the best cheese in its category, and the rich aromas that develop during the maturing process are absolutely unique. Its characteristics make this Comté a rare speciality in the true sense of the word: every year we try to get more loaves for you to purchase than is possible, due to the large demand for this cheese.
