1655 Gruyere is among our favorites of this classic Swiss cheese. Its supple, smooth texture is perfect for melting; its flavors of cream, brown butter, roasted nuts, and alliums are a savory delight.
Beverage pairings: Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, St. Laurent, hard cider, Amber ales, Darjeeling tea
