Excellent cheese shop in old Comté maturation cellars, with some of the best Comté available. You should get to taste three Comté cheeses that have been matured for different periods. Other local cheeses, foods and a few wines are also available, with plenty of advice given. You can also pay for a 45-minute tour and explanation (in French) with a cheese tasting accompanied by a local Côtes du Jura white wine at the end.
