Once made by monks in the French Pyrenees, Ossau Iraty boasts over 3,000 years of cheesemaking tradition. Full flavored, pliant, and a joy to melt.
This semi-firm paste feels luxuriously rich and buttery in the mouth. Notes of fresh grass and sweet cream play nicely with a toasted wheat and nut finish.
