This pasteurized sheep cheese has distinct flakiness and a deep, lingering, caramelized flavor. It garnered AOC status in 1980, this gem of the Basque Country in the French Pyrenees has notes of toasted wheat, roasted nuts, fresh grass, and wildflowers. Its aromas are pleasantly buttery and sweet. As it ages, the cheese’s texture changes, losing its creamy yield and developing calcium crystals that result in a wonderful subtle crunch. We haven't found another that comes close to this cheese's sweet, fatty, complex nuttiness. Ossau-Iraty wheels are made according to a tradition that dates back some 3,000 years. This means Ossau-Iraty predates the English alphabet. 7oz
