This is distinctly sweet, fragrant and fruity oil in the Provencal style, different from the Italian extra virgin olive oil. As France's most respected oil specialist, L'Olivier consistently produces a low acidity oil that is very versatile. Ideal when you really want a fruity but mild olive flavor. For greater shelf presence, we offer this oil in a beautiful rustic half liter stoneware crock which helps preserve the oil's freshness. This is an old olive that is known all over France for its extremely high quality and consistency.
