The Cave-aged Gruyere is matured for about one year in the secluded caves of Kaltbach near Lucerne in Switzerland. In the cool and humid air of these sandstone caves;the gourmet cheeses develop a dense texture with small salt crystals.
The cheese may have some desirable holes, but these are not essential. The cheese is smooth to the touch with a slightly damp feel. It is soft, reasonably firm and crumbly. Its even ivory coloring varies according to the season. The flavor of Cave-aged Gruyeère is refined, yet intense and you will agree with us that this is a cheese that you will appreciate.
We cut and wrap this cheese in pieces of approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces.
