BASQUE COUNTRY, FRANCE
Monday, February 12th, 2024

Not too long ago, we brought you some exclusive insights from the Maison Agour team as the company spotlighted its newest offerings. Now, even more new products are on display as the company broadens its diverse selection of artisan cheeses.

The producer’s latest selection of crafted cheeses travels better by plane and will thus be able to delight cheese lovers from all over the world, a recent press release explained.

Committed to Basque traditions, Agour crafts a diverse selection of artisan cheeses, ensuring exceptional quality and flavors

“Agour is the last independent dairy in the Basque Country,” the company stated in a press release. “Spread across the Franco-Spanish border on the slopes of the Pyrénées, the Basque Country is a gastronomic gem. The region offers ideal conditions for small-scale, high-quality farming and the production of premium milk that comes with it: Oceanic weather, excellent grass quality, mountain terrain, and a long-lasting tradition of sheep farming.”

The innovative air program collections include:

  • KETUA: Naturally smoked with beechwood, the Petit Agour range takes another dimension, complimenting typical Basque cheese flavors with a smoky, but not overwhelming flavor and deeper caramel notes
  • PIKORRA: One of the few ever made sheep milk crottin. All the sweetness of Basque cheese highlighted by the acidity of a fresh, lactic curd. Subtle taste, delicate in every aspect, with a slight creaminess beneath a lightly wrinkled crust
  • SAINT SAUVEUR DES BASQUES: Called after the chapel that towers over the Iraty Dairy, deep in the Basque Mountains, this iconic cheese is a soft paste bloomy white rinded sheep’s milk cheese. Its texture is very creamy, even slightly runny toward the end of the aging process
  • LEHUNA: Literally means “creamy” in Basque, it is a cow’s milk soft ripened reblochon style cheese.
