Ossau Iraty Montagne | French Basque Country, Béarn

$34.00 Per Pound

The Montagne part of this name denotes that is made in the Pyrenees Mountains, during the summer, in the most traditional way possible. 16 months of careful aging by rockstar affineur Rodolphe le Meunier ensure that the finished cheese is golden, deeply savory and nutty, and a true expression of both the terroir of the Vallee d’Ossau and many thousands of years of Basque cheesemaking tradition. Historically, one of the first cheeses ever made, this gem only gets better with age.

When shopping for alcohol, we want to make sure you know:

  • Alcohol cannot be delivered outside of New York State so beer, wine, and spirits will be removed from your cart during checkout if an address outside of New York State is selected for delivery.
  • Stinky BKLYN reserves the right not to deliver alcohol to certain buildings.
  • Smith & Vine and Stinky BKLYN are separate businesses. Because of this, you'll see two different charges on your preferred payment method when your order contains both wine/spirits and food. But don't worry—we'll deliver your whole order at once and only charge you a single delivery fee.
