Our bottle containers of Aglandau olive oil are for people who use this olive oil regularly. Our best customers will use several containers of this special oil each year.

Aglandau olive oil is a monovarietal olive oil entirely produced from olives from our orchards in Provence and pressed right here in our Château Virant mill under the direction of Christine Cheylan, director of the estate and internationally recognized oleologist.

This oil comes from Aglandau olive trees, which are native to Provence and typical of the south of France.

Aglandau olive oil is a powerful, unique oil. Its intense flavor is nuanced and balanced, containing herbaceous aromas of artichoke, fresh grass, and tomato.

The bitter, bold accents present in this oil contribute to its powerful taste and also guarantee its potential as a natural antioxidant. These two qualities also help to conserve the oil over time.

Pairings

This powerful oil accompanies dishes of character. Both raw and cooked, it partners well with arugula, mozzarella, tomatoes, and ratatouille and other vegetable dishes. It also compliments anchovies and aioli nicely.

Environmental distinction

Château Virant has an HVE 3 certification issued by the French government. This distinguished label is only obtained after having reached the highest level of environmental certification for farms. This label signifies sustainable production and practices with careful management of natural resources.

Awards

Aglandau olive oil from Château Virant regularly obtains gold and silver medals at the Concours Général Agricole of Paris and Concours PACA.

The Concours Général Agricole de Paris allows farmers to compete against their peers who produce similar products. Each year, Château Virant wins medals in this competition for its wines and oils, making it one of the most awarded estates in France.

In addition to the CGA, the Aglandau olive oil regularly medals in the competition of oils from the South Provence-Alpes Côte d'Azur (PACA) region. This regional competition rewards producers from the PACA region, which accounts for more than 2/3 of the French olive oil industry. This competition presents an array of products from Provence, allowing artisans from throughout the region to showcase their bounty for judging. The jurors are all knowledgeable professionals, which grants greater significance to the winners.

Finally, in 2020, Aglandau olive oil won a silver medal in the Olive Oil Japan competition.

An international competition, where global entrants compete against the over 700 extra virgin oils produced in Japan. Medaling in this particular competition recognized Château Virant as a strong player in the international olive oil industry.

Origin

All of our olive oils are labeled Olive Oil from France. This is our guarantee that our select olive oils are made from olives harvested from the olive groves at the Château Virant estate, in the very heart of Provence.

How it's made

Before harvesting our Aglandau olives, we carry out maturity tests to ensure organoleptic perfection. Then, we harvest trees planted exclusively with the Aglandau variety. We immediately press the olives in order to preserve the natural properties of the fruit in order to create the purest oil. The sooner the pressing occurs after harvesting, the better the quality of the oil will be.

Once pressed, our oils are kept in climate-controlled tanks under nitrogen until bottling. We only package individual bottles of oil once we receive an order to guarantee optimal conservation of our overall oil. At Château Virant, we only sell vintage oils, which means we only offer fresh oil made from the olives that were harvested that year.

Storage

Store oils in a cool, dry place to maintain the subtle flavors and nutritional benefits. By following these simple precautions, the taste qualities will not be compromised and the shelf life of the oil can be extended.

National distinction

Living Heritage Company

Thanks to its renowned oil mill, which is one of the largest in France, the Château Virant is the first estate in France to have been awarded the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label.

A little bit like monuments designated as national heritage sites, this label recognizes companies that serve as representatives of excellence in French craftsmanship and enterprise.

Culinary College of France

Since 2018, all of our olive oils have been recognized by the Culinary College of France. Created by internationally renowned chefs Alain Ducasse, Thierry Marx, Joël Robuchon and Yannick Alléno, this institution promotes French gastronomy throughout the world. With its judiciously recognized products, the Culinary College of France celebrates the heritage of French artisanal cuisine.

Bonjour,
Avez vous des points de vente sur Paris régions parisiennes. Merci
BR

administrator

Bonjour,

Nous avons de nombreux points de vente sur Paris notamment à la Grande Epicerie, à la Fayette Le Gourmet ou au Printemps Haussmann. Notre huile d'olive Aglandau n'est pas distribuée dans ces points de vente car il s'agit d'une production monovariétale particulière. Si vous souhaitez exclusivement ce produit mieux vaut commander sur notre site internet ou par téléphone.

Très cordialement.

A quelle date sera commercialisée l'huile nouvelle ?
Bien à vous

administrator

Bonjour, nous commercialisons déjà l'huile nouvelle.
Nous transformons nos olives au mois d'octobre tous les ans, l'huile nouvelle est donc vendue dès que cette transformation est effectuée, c'est à dire sous un mois après leur arrivée dans notre moulin.

Pour des raisons de qualité, nous ne commercialisons jamais d'huile du millésime précédent à partir de l'arrivée en cuve de notre dernier millésime.
