Semi-firm, nutty, sheep’s milk, France (Pyrenees)
Ossau-Iraty is a full-cream sheep’s milk cheese that is ivory in color with a natural dry thick rind that can range from an orangish yellow to a dark brownish gray. Pair slices with a tannic red wine, which tends to overwhelm a lot of other cheeses, but not this one, as it’s one of the most pairable cheeses. It’s also lovely with a juicy Bordeaux, a robust red Rhône or a tawny Port.
