Our types of Le Gruyère AOP

Le Gruyère AOP for every tastes

After 6 to 9 months, the cheese is aromatic and smooth and just right for palates that prefer a mild flavour. After 10 months, the mature Le Gruyère AOP Réserve will impress all lovers of full bodied cheese. A few cheese wheels are matured for up to 18 or even 24 months. These will appeal to connoisseurs of particularly strongly flavoured cheese. The maturation length may vary but the quality always remains outstanding!
