 Product Description

Ossau Iraty is uniformly smooth, close and dense and yet remains supple. Flavors are sweet and nutty, with pleasant notes of earth, cellar - especially with the cheeses made during the winter - and flavors of grass, flowers and savory vegetal notes from the summer cheeses.

Ossau Iraty is a wonderful sheep's milk cheese produced in a specific area of the French Pyrenées. The name is derived from the production area that includes two neighboring provinces: the Ossau Valley, located in the Bearn and Iraty, a forested area in the French Basque Pyrenées. Ossau Iraty is one large family of sheep's milk cheeses from this general region that includes Abbaye de Belloc, Valle d'Aspe, Istara and several others. Milk for production comes from the local breeds of sheep, the Manech and Basco-Bearnaise.
