Aglandau olive oil
Aglandau olive oil is a single variety olive oil produced entirely from olives grown in our orchards in Provence and pressed in our mill under the supervision of Christine Cheylan, director of the estate and internationally recognized oleologist.
This oil comes from Aglandau olive trees. This typical variety of South of France distinguishes the olive oils of our region from its competitors by its power.
The Aglandau olive oil is intense in fruity vegetable, balanced and harmonious. In the mouth, it has pronounced herbaceous aromas, such as raw artichoke, grass or freshly cut grass, tomato plant.
The bitterness and the ardence are present and contribute to its gustatory power and guarantee its potential of "natural" antioxidant. These two qualities are also the guarantee of the good conservation of oils in time.
