Details

Gruyere d’Alpage AOC is one of the most iconic Alpine cheeses.

The current wheels are from summer 2019.

Made only in the summer, this Alpine Gruyere has a fruity and complex floral character, due to the cows grazing purely on Summer Alpine pasture. The milk is heated over a wood fire, lending an occasional smoky note. A very specialist cheese, only two wheels are made each day.

Matured for a minimum of 16 months in cheese caves this Gruyère d’Alpage develops a truly profound and lingering flavour that should be enjoyed slowly. Match the outstanding cheese with an equally outstanding wine with a full flavour.
