Description

Made high in the rugged mountains that form a natural border between France and Spain, this rare blue cheese is available only on a very seasonal basis. Made during the lambing season which runs from early spring to late summer the cheese is a close cousin of the famous AOC sheep milk cheeses of Ossau Iraty.
Seeded with a Roquefort blue mould, the reddish brown rinded wheels are spiked after two months and then matured in humid cur- ing rooms for at least a further 4 months. Small pockets of salty blue moulds form in the cheese as it slowly hardens, developing a nutty texture, and slightly sweet floral aftertaste reminiscent of the pastures of the high alpage.
