The Flavor Experience
A creamy sheep with a smooth texture, a buttery flavor, and a finish of black olives and toasted hazelnuts.
Agour had the honor of winning a coveted best in show at the world cheese awards in 2006. So feel free to tell your friends they're wrong if they don't like it as much as you do.
The buttery smooth taste of Ossau Iraty takes well to partners as diverse as chocolate figs and spiced black olives. I like it best with a little rose and a nice saucisson sec.
