'' It is a cheese like one still makes, in Mountain of Ossau..
For the Gourmands and for others..
Thick crust ocher, scaly brown, smooth white ivory firm but melting, pleasant character, although very marked, the OSSALOIS has a beautiful temperament.
It is distinguished by a very fragrant taste, long in the mouth, nuanced with wild flavors: Hazelnut, licorice, gentian. He is a pure farmer and craftsman. He lives to the rhythm of the seasons, to the shepherds of every shepherd, and if he happens to be in a changing mood, he never comes across acidity.
L'OSSALOIS is the accomplishment of a whole line of preserved centenary practices. Generations succeeded one another, those of the sheep, the shepherds and saddles of my family, without this inheritance being denied.
It is with pleasure and pride that we will make you visit our salers and you will taste the very soul of our Valley.
You say character?
He does not spare the trouble of the shepherds, nor of the Master Affineur, the OSSALOIS. It is in his temperament. He needs sheep's milk, fed in the winter to hay or corn, and summer to the wild grass of the summer pastures. Basque-Béarnaise sheep pure-bred, rustic but light, preferring the open air of the peaks and the fresh water of the streams.
