Aged for approximately eight months, Ossau Iraty can have a pungent gamey aroma but is full of flavour that melts in your mouth. This semi firm cheese has a slightly oily texture with a savoury and sweet nutty flavor with hints of figs, hazelnuts, and olives. Said to be one of the first cheeses ever produced, this gem from Aquitaine, France has only gets better with age. Ossau stands as one of the most pairable cheeses around. Perfect for a big Bordeaux, raisiny Port, or any new world red.
