For our French cheeses we have partnered with Beillevaire.

Small company started in the 1980s in the West of France by Pascal Beillevaire, a dairy farmer.

All cheeses are artisan or farmhouse, produced or handpicked by Pascal, selected for their quality and originality. 

The comte has a brown natural rind. The paste is yellow sprinkled with white hues (The
milk protein crystalised by the maturation). The texture is buttery and the flavours are
rich and intense. You will get some roasted coffee aroma or a touch of dry fruits.

How it's made

Producers collect the milk
every day from a very limited amount of farms surrounding the
dairy. To comply with Comte specifications, the breed of cows are
Montbeliarde or Simental. The comte is a pressed and cooked
cheese. It is unpasteurised but suitable for pregnant women. We
aged the cheeses in our own Cellar at Vieu D’Izenav with a
consistant and high humidity level of 95% and consistant
temperature of 12 to13 degrees celcius all year long.
