Ossau-Iraty AOC is a Basque/Pyrenees mountain cheese with a wonderfully smooth fruity flavour. Made from the milk of the black-faced Manech sheep in the Iraty region of France from a recipe that has remained unchanged for over 150 years. The Basques apparently called all of their ewe’s milk cheese Ardi-gasna, which means fromage du pays or “sheep cheese” and is also referred to simply as Brebis. The cheeses have a golden crust and a rich interior, with hints of caramel. Ossau-Irarty gained its coveted AOC status in March 1980.
