The olive grove

Lancelier en Provence honors traditional expertise. It is on the side of a hill, dominated by scrubland and sheltered from the wind by the Alpilles and where the weather and the seasons are intertwined, where the olive grove comes to life at Mouriès.

Here, we have carried out reasoned cultivation and the crop is harvested manually in the interest of respect for the environment.

The trees are in the image of those who collect the harvest, contemplating the decor and breathing in the aroma of an air embalmed in peace. Six hundred feet dot the olive grove for the start of a collection that is controlled, almost secret…

1956

1956: The cold snap that swept through the Baux Valley wiped out most of the olive trees known for their unique olive oil. This is a valley that is so unique that the olive trees were able to rise again, at the foot of their respective stumps.

 

The 1956 Lancelier en Provence vintage is a tribute to the power of a nature that is as strong as it is beautiful.

The grove includes the five typical varieties of olives of the Alpilles (the Salonenque, the Verdale, the Béruguette, the Grossane and the Picholine)).

The precious“Green Gold  of the Baux Valley comes from their subtle blend selected by the skill of our miller.

The fruity black

The fruity black is the product of controlled maturation and fermentation sheltered from the open air for four to six days. This oil brings together an aroma of truffles, mushrooms, black tapenade and sourdough bread …

In cuisine, it can be used in stews such as ratatouille and Pistou soup; in delicacies, it can also be used to transform mashed potato, fish and even a chocolate dessert.
