Abbaye de Belloc is a flat wheel-shaped traditional, farmhouse, semi-hard cheese made from sheep's milk. It has a natural, crusty, brownish rind with patches of red, orange and yellow. The rind is marked with tiny craters.

 

The cheese has a firm, dense, rich and creamy texture. The taste resembles burnt caramel and there is a distinctive aroma.

 

The Basque country is located between France and Spain at the Western part of the Pyrenean mountains. Both oriented towards the ocean and the mountain, this area had its own culture, language and obviously food specialties. One of them is their sheep cheeses. 

The Pur Brebis de l'Abbaye de Belloc stands in this tradition. As the sheep wander around in the mountains they can produce a delicious milk, almost fruity which in the process of making the cheese brings lots of flavours.
