About the Cheese

Gruyère Reserve, one of the most famous artisan cheeses made in the Swiss Alps, is matured for a minimum of 14 months in cheese caves, developing a truly profound and lingering flavour.

Its sweet and nutty paste is dotted with tiny protein crystals that pleasantly crunch on the teeth.

Gruyère is an essential ingredient in the classic Swiss Fondue, called Moitié-Moitié.

This outstanding cheese pairs beautifully with medium-bodied red and white wines, as well as sparkling wines like champagne, enhancing its rich and complex flavours.

 

Cheesemaker: Fromagerie Le Cret

Fromagerie Le Crêt is renowned for its dedication to traditional cheesemaking. After spending two years at the Auboranges cheese factory, the current Master Cheesemaker arrived at the Le Crêt cheese factory in July 2010 to complete his final year of CFC apprenticeship.

Over the following years, he honed his skills, earning both the Federal Certificate and the Federal Master's degree to become a Master Cheesemaker.

After 11 years at Crêt, he decided in 2021, with the support of his wife, to take over the cheese business. His objective is to ensure the quality and continuity of the products manufactured at Crêt.
