The semi-hard cheese is aged for a minimum of 70 days, during which it develops a basket-weave pattern similar to Spain's famous Manchego cheese but with milder and delicate favour. It has a distinctive aroma of sheep's milk, and a smooth, sweet flavour with a nutty finish.
P'tit Basque is a 100% pure sheep's milk cheese produced in France's Basque region in the Pyrenees Mountains, the region that spans the border between France and Spain. Traditionally, it was handmade by shepherds from leftover curds set aside from milking their sheeps. And even today P'tit Basque is made using the same methods applied by the local shepherds. P'tit Basque can be enjoyed as a snack with fruits, with grilled vegetables, fruits, berries and cured meats, and even in salads.
