Organic La Cravenco Olive Oil

Organic La Cravenco Olive Oil

from $25.00
Item # multi-Cravenco

Pure butter is the best way to describe this small batch of organic olive oil from Provence, France! This magnificent organic lot comes from a grove situated near Fontvielle in the heart of the Valley of Baux-de-Provence. This olive oil is the paradigm of purity for this prestigious appellation. The olives are harvested when “turning” – in the course of changing from green to violet – unveiling the aromatic richness of this oil.

In Provençal, La Cravenco means “The Daughter of the Crau,” the delta of the Durance River and the Rhône River. Respectful of the terroir and its traditions, while at the same time, at the forefront of modernity, guided by a constant concern for quality, this domain brings out the beauty and the richness of each of its olives.

You will appreciate this olive oil with a floral and delicate taste profile with notes of dry grass, baked apple, and butter. Like all of our Grand Crus, this olive oil is available in limited quantites.  Enjoy it while you can!
