Amidst the scenic rolling mountains of the Pyrenees, the geographic border dividing France and Spain, lie vast pastures providing fertile grazing for milk-giving sheep. It is from this milk that Agour, a family company steeped in tradition, creates this magnificent cheese. Aged for a minimum of six months, this AOC protected cheese is of a quality and complexity rarely seen. A slightly dry texture gives way to a creamy, buttery quality, and the flavors hint at a subtle mingling of herbs and fruit, with slightly nutty undertones. A real gem, and one you're sure to enjoy.
For dessert, try Agour Ossau-Iraty accompanied with Les Folies Fromage Fruit Spreads. Black Cherry and Licorice make for an incredible combination.
World Champion honors went to Agour Fromagerie of France for its Ossau Iraty sheep's milk cheese at the World Cheese Awards in London (June 2006).
