The 36-month Comté
It is so good to grow old!
With a 36-month maturation period, which is rare, our raw milk Comté is quite simply a gastronomic wonder. During these long weeks, the Comté of La Crèmerie Royale is awarded great care and attention by the cheese makers. The Comté mold is turned regularly, brushed and rubbed with the brine, in line with ancient tradition. Once pressed, the cheese is firm and has a melt-in-the-mouth quality. Thinly sliced, the full range of flavours is released: melted butter, hazelnut, fine salt crystals…a unique cheese for an unrivalled pleasure.

A Northern speciality, previously known as the ‘boule’ of Lille.
Our Mimolette is a pasteurized, pressed cheese, made in the North since the XVIIth century. The original orange colour allows it to stand out from other cheeses. In order to protect the production of French cheeses and to differentiate them from imported Dutch cheeses, a natural colouring agent, Roucou, is used. Our extra-aged Mimolette has a tasty and slightly tangy, brittle paste. The flavour strengthens over time, which is why we make sure that the cheese has matured for at least 24 months.
The mildness of Entre-Deux
The golden crust, the smooth, slightly crumbly texture and the milky, slightly fruity taste combine to create a cheese of great renown. Cantal is prepared from raw cow milk originating exclusively from an area of 600,000 acres in the heart of the Auvergne region known as the Pays Vert or Green Country, where rich soils and fresh grass grow in abundance. It takes at least 33 hours to prepare the Cantal: after stirring, the curd is placed under weight-blocks before being left to mature, and hence the traditional production method of achieving the incomparable taste is maintained.
