Gruyere Alpage Moleson

$56.00/Lb


Gruyère Alpage Moléson is handmade by a single-family cheese dairy, and with every bite of this pliable, dense Gruyère, you can taste the artistry and dedication to craftsmanship. It matures for 18 months—the perfect amount of time to develop a balanced brothy and caramel flavor. Browned with age and pitted with tiny holes, its flavor is so nuanced and layered that it’s well-worth eating as is or paired with slices of hearty Tanara Culatta. Round out your spread with the spice of Pacific Pickle Works Asparagusto or the sweetness of Murray’s Sundried Cherries.

Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments.  To request a whole wheel, please contact the Murray's team at orders@murrayscheese.com at least 72 hours prior to your desired ship date.

Pour a glass of...
  • Chianti

    Chianti is named for a region in Italy, and is actually made from a blend of grapes (mostly Sangiovese). This dry, medium-bodied wine has a distinct herbal quality (think rosemary and oregano) with flavors of dried plums and cherries.

    Pair with: An herb-crusted cheese like Hudson Flower or a Tuscan Pecorino.

  • Merlot

    A smooth and medium-bodied wine with a more rounded flavor than other reds. Dark fruits are present but with minimal tannins and no noticeable spice.

    Pair with: Earthy tommes like Toma Walser, mellow Fontina, or a lightly aged goat cheese like Leonora.


  • Pale Ales & IPAs

    Hoppy Beers - Pale Ale, IPA, Amber, Red Ale

    Hops, glorious hops! Think of hops as the seasoning for beer: they lend the bitter yin to balance malt’s sugary yang. In IPAs and other hoppy beers this humble flower takes center stage. Flavors range from grassy to grapefruit, earthy and dry to resinous pine, depending on which hop varietals are used.
    Pair with: Cheeses with enough body to stand up to the bitterness, like clothbound cheddar or aged Gouda.
