Grand Brahis noir AOP Vallee des Baux de Provence extra virgin olive oil is a rich, fragrant finishing touch for traditional Provencal dishes.
Chef Francesco Mazzei calls it "A f***ing great olive oil. It has a beautiful fragrance, a cascade of flavours and absolutely no pepper or harshness in the finish. It’s perfect."
The first thing you’ll notice is how much it tastes just like olives. This may sound strange, but in many other olive oils you’ll notice other flavours before you taste the essential ‘olive-ness’.
Another of the stand-out features of this oil is its softness. Olive oil from Provence is known to be much softer than its Italian counterparts, and the Grand Brahis noir is exceptionally so. It is rich, rounded and full of flavour, and there’s not a hint of harshness or any peppery notes on the finish. You may detect notes of artichoke, tapenade and even leavened bread.
Grand Brahis noir extra virgin olive oil is best paired with hearty, robust Provencal dishes. Drizzle over dishes such as ratatouille, pissaladière onion tart, pasta with truffles or garlic snails just before serving.
Grand Brahis make olive oil in the Vallee des Baux de Provence, in the south of France. Five varieties of olives are grown on the Grand Brahis estate - Grossane, Verdale, Aglandau, Salonenque and Picholine. They flourish in the dry, sunny climate and have no need for fertilisers or pesticides – so all Grand Brahis olive oil is organic.
