French olive varietals are quite uncommon in California, so this is a very special olive oil. This USDA Certified Organic extra virgin olive oil has a rich, buttery flavor profile and though less peppery and pungent, this oil is unmistakably fresh and robust.
Olives used: Canyon, Picholine, Tanche & Bouteillan
It was harvested a few weeks later than the olives in our other EVOO's so has a higher proportion of black vs. more green olives which makes it slightly milder.
Use it where a less assertive oil would be best, like in baking or in a homemade French aioli sauce. We have covered a young roasting chicken with The Provencal, rosemary, thyme & sage for a classic, rustic dish to highlight this French blend. Harvested November 2020 and bottled to order.
