Olive Oil from the Vallée des Baux de Provence P.D.O. - Grand Cru Noir
Virgin – Black Fruit – Product of France
Our “La Lieutenante” Grand Cru Noir olive oil is a pure juice of fruit, extracted cold, mainly in November, from the pulp of our olives after maturation.
Once picked, our olives are stored for a few days in hermetically sealed palox containers to obtain that maturation. Perfectly controlled in terms of time and temperature, this technique combines time-honoured know-how with sophisticated modern processes. The oil is then extracted solely by mechanical means, without refining and without the slightest additive.
This controlled fermentation helps produce a very mild oil with notes of cocoa, mushrooms, undergrowth and black olive, without bitterness nor fieriness.
Its taste recalls the olive oil of our forebears. It can be used in all traditional Provencal recipes. It will enhance in particular all salads, especially salads with garlic, bacon bits, gizzards or chicken livers, tomatoes, anchovies, etc. It is ideal for an aioli, a mash of new potatoes or a chickpea puree, and goes perfectly also with goat’s cheese and fruit desserts.
Our 250ml / 8.45fl. oz, 500ml / 16.91fl. oz and 750ml / 25.36fl. oz cans are perfectly opaque for optimal keeping of our olive oil. They are fitted with a particularly functional anti-drip spout and are ready to put on every table!
Olive oil makes a marvellous, original and refined gift in its fine arched packaging, also available in 500ml / 16.91fl. oz can.
The 3L Bag In Box (BIB) is ideal for good keeping of larger volumes of our olive oil. The opaque cardboard provides protection from light and the zipped pocket prevents contact with air, to keep our olive oil under optimal conditions.
