What is the best cheese in the world? This Swiss gruyere reigns supreme.

Call it a glorious Gruyere. A delicious dairy dish. A champion cheese.

In record-breaking fashion, a Gruyere from Switzerland claimed the cheese world’s top prize Thursday, earning the title of 2020 World Champion Cheese.

The cheese: Gourmino Le Gruyère AOP from Bern, Switzerland, made by Michael Spycher of Mountain Dairy Fritzenhaus for Gourmino AG.

It scored 98.81 out of 100 as it beat out a record-breaking 3,667 entries from 26 nations in the biennial World Championship Cheese Contest held in Madison, Wisconsin.

“This is quite a good cheese,” said Stefan Truttmann, a judge who accepted the award on the Swiss cheese makers’ association’s behalf, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

Spycher and his Gruyere are no strangers to the winner’s circle: They took home the same prize in 2008.

Described as a cow’s milk cheese with “a subtle, sophisticated flavor” by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association, Gourmino Le Gruyère AOP has been made for the past 900 years in the region around Gruyère with the same traditional recipe and ripens up to 24 months in mountain caves.

“It could be the grass, it could be the cows,” Truttmann told the Wisconsin State Journal. “Obviously he’s got a certain trick that makes his the best.”
