***World Champion 2016*** For the first time since 1988, a cheesemaker from the United States won the World Championship Cheese Contest. Grand Cru Surchoix was crowned the Grand Champion on March 9, 2016! Grand Cru (formerly known as Grand Cru Gruyere), an Alpine-style, raw cow's milk cheese, is aged approximately nine months. The texture is smooth and dense, with occasional pinprick holes and the interior paste is a pale yellow straw color. This cheese is rich and creamy with a nutty aroma. This cheese is cellar cured, washed rind, and hand made in small batches.
