Petit Basque

Sheep Milk Le P'tit Basque Cheese 670 g



Pasteurised sheep's milk.

Ewe's milk aroma with a soft, sweet flavour and a hazelnut finish. Melting paste with a subtle fruity flavour. Unique, delicately carved rind, characteristic of the wicker moulds of yesteryear.

Produced by the Istara cheese factory in Larceveau, in the heart of the Basque Country, France.


A Basque shepherd's son had the idea of making his sheep's cheese tommes in a small wicker basket. The result of this experiment was a cheese with a singular appearance, with a rind surprisingly sculpted by the weaving of his basket.
