Extra Virgin Green Fruity Maison Brémond Heritage Olive Oil
The olive grove in Haute-Provence from which Maison Brémond selected these olives for the Fruity Green Heritage Olive oil, is made up of around 1,500 trees over an area of more than 4 hectares. It has an ideal orientation and forms a dale crossed by the bed of a small river. Some of the olive trees were planted around 15 years ago and are mostly of the Aglandau, Frantoio and Bouteillan varieties, cultivated by the Drac family all year round for our immense pleasure.
LIMITED EDITION TO 930 liters - Gold award at the New York 2021 competition.
The last harvest was in October. The olives were pressed just a couple of hours after being picked in the Moulin du Luberon in Volx in Haute-Provence to obtain 930 litres of an outstanding extra virgin olive oil. All the pride of Maison's team is in this new fruity green oil.
We have called it HERITAGE olive oil because it is packaged in our 500 ml Vintage metal cans, which were the start of our Maison in 1830.
Fruity green that presents on the nose notes of fern and artichoke mixed with notes of pear, apple and red fruits.
In the mouth, the oil is sweet at first, then we feel hints of bitterness and astringency. We find notes of almond, banana peel and crunched green olive.
Excellent with a potato salad in their jackets, to finish with oven-baked seasonal vegetables..
