OSSAU-IRATY

Raw Sheep's Milk
France, Pyrenees (AOC)
Aged: 4 months

The Pyrenees Mountains that naturally divide France & Spain lay claim to some of the oldest (dating back an undisputed 4,000 years) & best cheeses in the world—owing much to its terroir.  Elegant, unforgettable yet unassuming, Ossau-Iraty is cheese in its most perfect potential.  The compact, ivory paste is creamy on the tongue with a nuttiness coupled with a subtle lemony-sour tang inherit in raw milk cheeses.  The flavor of this slightly sweet & buttery mountain cheese also suggests olives & fruit.
