Description:
The Basque region is in the south west of France and encompasses the Pyrénées Mountains bordering Spain. The people of Basque Country insist their brebis cheeses have remained true to the traditional style for over 4000 years.

The Agour cheese dairy is situated at the bottom of Mt. Baigura in the heart of French Basque Country. Their Agour Petite Brebis Pimento is an artisan semi-hard sheep milk cheese that has a natural rind which is covered with pimento in the later stages of affinage. The pâté is dense with little elasticity, yet retains a soft melting creamy texture in the mouth when chewed. The cheese is full with complex flavours on the palate.
