Petit Basque

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 ewes. And even today, P'tit Basque is made using the same method used by the local shepherds.

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 more delicate favour. It has a distinctive aroma of sheep's milk and a smooth, sweet flavour with a nutty finish.

P'tit Basque can be enjoyed as a snack with fruits, grilled vegetables, berries and cured meats, and even salads.


Our cheese case is small and meticulously cared for. We don’t try to carry everything, but instead we scour the field for tasty and interesting cheeses that satisfy the imagination as much as they satisfy the palate. We keep an ever rotating selection of about 45 cheeses in stock so there is always something new to try, but you can count on finding your favourites too--and every one of them is delicious!
