Cheese experts

This is hardly worth starting a thread for. Just a question, for which it’s not likely that there’s more than one answer:

Sommelier is to wine as _________ is to cheese. Fill in the blank for me?

affineur -- but I'm not fond of this one because it is specifically about the aging of the cheese within a certain environment, over a period of days or years, and not about making the cheese.

fromager -- not very specific, but it is a person that knows about cheese

Maitre Fromager -- meaning Master of cheese
Cheese Wiz -- someone that knows about cheese (ha ha)
Cheese Head -- someone from Wisconsin or has cheese on the mind


I'm sure there's more!

I guess I’ll have to go with fromager; affineur sounds more like someone who just loves cheese, your definition of it also makes me think that it’s not the cheese version of sommelier. And Maitre fromager sounds just a bit too grand, to the point of being pretentious.

How about, "Cheese Guy". You can't be serious about cheeses unless you have a Cheese Guy.
