The Comté Cheese Association has updated their “Wheel of Aromas”, a handy guide to the 83 smells and aromas commonly found in Comté cheese. This is designed for Comté specifically, but it’s a useful reference for anyone looking to expand their cheese vocabulary and sensory evaluation skills. Via Comte-USA.com:
The “Comité Interprofessionnel du Comté” has created a wheel showcasing the aromas of Comté. It counts 83 terms or descriptors that correspond to the most frequently found smells and aromas in Comté, grouped within 6 families. In a ripe Comté, tasters generally pick up 2 or 3 main families and mention 5 to 10 descriptors precisely. The 6 families are: Lactic, Fruity, Roasted, Vegetal, Animal, Spicy.
Tasting is subjective, and the aromas evolve/vary with the Comté’s terroir, season of production and length of time aging in the cellars. These families of aromas might help you to choose the style of Comté that you prefer. And, of course, the best Comté is the one that tastes best to you! Let’s taste and discover your favorite!
