What is Fruit Noir?
The art of a fine Coufi makes it so

There is something about the French olive oils these last two years that sets them apart from all others. Domaine du Castelas, pretentiously ranked as one of the best olive oils in the world, has a deep green color that is enhanced by an even darker inner blackness that you can see but that isn’t really there. It must be a refraction thing. The best way to see it is to pour some into a cup or white spoon.

Fruité Noir is not like other classic olive oils, which are pressed from the flesh of freshly picked olives; it's, in fact, coufi olives that are stored in a warm place before pressing. To learn more about coufi and Fruité Noir, and read about why this oil is unique and how its pressed from selected olives from the "center of the pile."

To smell this oil is to inhale a smell so familiar, yet so difficult to describe with words. It's like a just bitten black olive, a little milky, that wafts upon the nose. The first taste is more buttery in feel to the lips, with a tingle on the very tip of the tongue. And then, the oil lands on the taste buds with a softness and a unique flavor of a coufi olive. And to finish, there is a slight, pinpoint burn in the back of throat.

We first brought in just a few bottles for the store which sold out in hours! To sample this oil is like candy to an olive lover! Add this oil to your repertoire!
