Arnaud Fromagerie is one of the finest and most influential affineurs of Comté. They are the only dairy in France to be awarded the Grand Prix d’Excellence by the Concours Général de Paris for consistently producing exceptional cheese. For over 100 years and three generations, the Arnaud family has traditionally matured cheeses at Fort des Rousses. The Fort originally was built by Napolean over 200 years ago was converted into a purpose built cheese maturing facility by the Arnaud family in 1995. Dense in texture and complex in flavour and aroma, each individual wheel of Comté shows a unique set of nuances depending on the season. Every cheese exhibits the intense nuttiness, buttery flavour and smooth finish that are the hallmark of quality Comté.
