Chateau Virant PDO Aix-en-Provence Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the most highly awarded olive oil in all of France. Since 1996, this oil has won gold in national and international competitions. We are so proud of this oil, harvested exclusively in our orchards in Provence and pressed in our mill in the heart of the Château Virant estate.
To produce this select oil, the olives are harvested early in the season and the resulting oil presents itself as pale green in color with golden reflections. The dominant aromas are fresh grass, foliage, green apple, and almond on the nose and palate. The structure is complex, smooth, and balanced. It’s slight bitterness contributes to its overall complexity.
The oil offered here is our personal favorite, the one that we use at our own table. It is the indisputable favorite of the Cheylan family. We often use this oil to dip with bread as an aperitif. We also use it in family recipes, and as a finishing touch to a special dish. It is the one oil that unites us, and it is the one that we share with our friends.
Both raw and cooked, this olive oil is remarkable with all types of salads, vegetables, and fish. It also pairs well with white and red meats, especially lamb. This oil is ideal for any purpose without question.Net Weight: 50 cl. / 16.9 fl. oz.
