Le Gruyère AOC Cavern Here’s an outtake from their online blurb:
Le Gruyère AOC Cavern · Cave-aged 11 months
Gourmet, full-bodied Gruyère AOC with extra bite
The much-loved Gruyère AOC cheese has been produced
in the region of Gruyère, Western Switzerland, since the
12th century. A staple of all gourmet cheese platters, and a
versatile cooking and eating cheese, Le Gruyère AOC takes
on extremely noble notes when aged to full maturity.
Le Gruyère AOC 11 months from the Cavern range is a
deliciously full-bodied cheese distinguished from its
milder variants by a distinctive crystalline crunch, a hard
crumbly and grainy paste and melting grains.
Le Gruyère AOC is prepared from the finest raw milk from
cows fed on grass during the summer and hay during the
winter. The use of any additives is prohibited.
The character of this superior cheese lies in its specific
production methods, which, in accordance with AOC
requirements, remain true to the original recipe and follow
After being aged for two to three months, the Gruyère AOC
wheels arrive at the Mifroma caverns from local village
dairies. The cheese is then ripened over several months in
our sandstone caverns that benefit from 96% humidity and a
constant temperature (55.4 – 57.2° F). It is in this exceptional
environment that the cheese acquires its succulent character.
