Gruyere from Switzerland Named World's Best Cheese

The winner for the 2010 World Championship Cheese Contest held in Madison, Wisconsin is Swiss Cheesemaker Cedric Vuille's Gruyere.
Swiss and Austrian cheesemakers took top honours Thursday at the 2010 World Championship Cheese Contest in Madison, beating out some 2,300 entries from 20 countries ranging from Argentina to Switzerland. Cheesemaker Cedric Vuille took top honors with a Gruyere that judges lauded for its creamy texture and light hint of herbs.
"It's very smooth, it's aromatic and it has a very clean cheese flavour," said Bill Schlinsog, one of 30 judges. "It has a burst of flavour and then it settles down very nicely in the mouth."
The runner-up: Andeer Sennerei of Andeer, Switzerland.
Third place: Alois Pesendorfer of Gmunden, Austria
