This French extra virgin olive oil features distinct aromas of super-fresh cut grass, raw artichokes, and a peppery edge.

Moulin Castelas olive oil has been awarded gold medals at the Concours General Afticole in Paris for eight years in a row!

Castelas, Provencal for "old castle", is also the name of the olive groves in the Callee des Baux de Provence where Castelas olives are grown and pressed.

Castelas' a 111-acre olive grove is in the Vallee des Baux de Provence Appellation d'Origine Controlee (AOC) area.

It's in this magical place - hundred-year-old olive groves, the Chateau des Baux, among the great landscape of the Alpilles hill range -- that Catherine and Jean-Benoit Hugues built their mill.

They grow several olive varieties typical of their terroir - Aglandau, Grossane, Salonenque and Verdale - and cultivate them according to each tree's needs, the soil, and the rhythm of the seasons.

Every tree receives careful attention throughout the vegetative cycle. Additionally, the oil is extracted within 12 hours of harvesting, producing an olive oil of impeccable freshness, expressing the green and fruity character of this exceptional terroir.

Tasting Notes:

Distinct aromas of super-fresh cut grass, raw artichokes, with a peppery edge.
