I bought this evoo from a Maison Brémond store in Antibes, France. The store clerk said this evoo was made with darker olives and was good for cooking. The bottle also has an illustration of black olives, so presumably this harvest is later in the season. In inspecting the bottle more it lists (which is helpful for consumers) a harvest date: “11/2022”. So the harvest period is mid season. (Neither early nor late) i was told this evoo was that of the company’s versus from another orchard/family–which the company has some different offerings of. Hence, the identifier for this model is the oil mill they used which is located on the bottle where they usually put the orchard/family: Moulin La Fine à Volx.

This evoo is soft, light, a bit sweet and well balanced. I enjoyed it. Can certainly and confidently be used for cooking. Light notes reminiscent of ripe banana and freshly picked olives. Certainly suitable to sip on or pair for those looking for an evoo that is light. But for those looking for an evoo that is stronger with higher tasting intensity this isn’t the evoo I would recommend. A pleasant, high-quality, and well-balanced Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the Aix-en-Provence region in France.
