Provençal olive oils are light with just enough of the bitter trace of olive. They are not as robust as some Italian olive oils, so are perfect for salads, serving with honey, cheese or fruit. These oils are often used as finishing oils, so the true beauty and complexity of the flavor can be experienced.
Drizzle olive oil over pizza fresh out of the oven, toss with pasta, mashed potatoes, beans, fish or meats. They make wonderful salad dressings. Vinaigrette will never be the same.
Our Reserve Jean Reno Olive Oils are exclusively imported from a region of Southern France famous for olives since the early Roman Empire. Maussane-les-Alpilles, in the heart of the Vallée des Baux-de-Provence, continues to rank as France’s top olive oil producer with AOC status.
Award-winning actor Jean Reno has lived there for over 25 years and has become a passionate and expert olive grower, president of an olive oil association, and now a producer of fine olive oils.
Hand-harvested in Jean Reno’s orchard, the olives are processed in the traditional way: whole fruits are aged for a brief period to intensify flavors, crushed into a paste under ancient granite millstones, and then mechanically cold-pressed to extract pure, unfiltered olive oil. The terroir of Provence is evident in the delicate flavors and aromas of these premium French olive oils.
