Cheese: Ossau Iraty

Ossau Iraty

Ossau Iraty

Ossau Iraty  is a classic sheep’s milk cheese made in the French Pyrénées in two neighboring provinces. Ossau Iraty is made with the milk of the Manech and Basco-Bearnaise ewes. While it complies with strict Appellation d’Origine Controlée regulations, the shape of each wheel can vary from region to region. Ossau is aged for a minimum of ninety days until its paste has turned a luscious ivory; its fragrance is reminiscent of toasted hazelnuts, and its taste encapsulates the sweet, buttery flavors that a great sheep’s milk cheese can deliver. This cheese pairs nicely with mast wines, especially Sauvignon Blancs, or Merlots.
