OLIVE OIL SELECTION BY OLIVIERS & CO

 

OLIVE OIL SELECTION BY OLIVIERS&CO.

To select the best wines, there is no secret: you have to taste them. For olive oil, it's exactly the same thing. You have to use your senses (sight, smell and taste) to perceive the quality of the terroir and the work of the producer behind each exceptional olive oil.

At Oliviers&Co. we organise a tasting committee. It is Eric Verdier, our quality and creation director, a specialist in sensory analysis, who is in charge. For each vintage, we compare notes and appreciations of each one. This stage is essential, as it allows us to refine our definition of the organoleptic characteristics.

Every week, the selected olive oils are subjected to a sensory analysis test in order to monitor their evolution and stability over time.

 

 

WHAT MAKES OLIVIERS&CO OLIVE OILS UNIQUE.

  • A demanding selection: every year we travel around the Mediterranean to select a hundred or so artisanal mills according to very strict specifications. Our producers guarantee us the terroir, the olive varieties and a vintage olive oil produced in the purest regional tradition and using sustainable agriculture. All the oils are rated on a scale of 200 points, and only about thirty are selected each year by our expert oleicologist.

 

  • A unique traceability from the orchard to the bottle: We control more than 1200 batches per year, both on sensory and taste conformity, but also through a rigorous physico-chemical analysis. All our oils are then bottled in our workshop in Mane in Haute-Provence. Because we don't want to hide anything from our customers, each label specifies: country of origin, name of the estate and producer, date of harvest and olive varieties. 

 

  • Quality and freshness: In our partner mills, the olives are picked by hand, and cold pressed within 24 hours of harvesting. From 5 to 12 kilos of olives are used to obtain one litre of exceptional oil: this low yield is a guarantee of quality. Our aromatic oils are obtained by simultaneously pressing olives with citrus fruits, aromatic herbs or fresh spices: no flavour is therefore added. Our bottles and cans are opaque, to preserve the taste quality of our olive oils.
