    Although it pains me to admit it, the Swiss Gruyere is better than the French Comte, essentially the same cheese. However, I think the French goat milk cheeses are unmatched.

    I agree completely, and I love Gruyère too. You should try Beaufort from Savoie if you get a chance. It seems closer to Gruyère than Comté. One of my favorites!
