Gruyère 1655

Fromagerie Le Cret


Located in the Canton of Fribourg, Switzerland cheesemaker Jean-Marie Dunand of Fromagerie Le Cret crafts his Gruyère using only the most exceptional milk. He makes 18-20 wheels a day, 365 days a year, using freshly delivered milk from eight small local farms. The cows graze on mountain pasture, and the unique composition of the grass reflects in the cheese. After wheels age for three months at Le Crêt, Fromage Gruyère SA brings them to their caves 15 km away to continue the maturing. Gruyère 1655 is exceptional with balanced flavors of salt and sweetness. It is earthy, nutty, and fruity, all at once.
