POPELIN, A PHARMACIST, OPENED A SHOP IN THE MARAIS TO ACQUAINT HIS PARISIAN CLIENTS WITH PROVENÇAL OILS IN 1822. He believed “l’or vert est un elixir” (“the green gold is an elixir”). Modern science agrees. The nearly 200-year-old enterprise is still privately held and is keeping its shop in the Marais. The main task of A L’Olivier is the meticulous selection of its olive oils to ensure impeccable quality. To that end, they scour the oil-producing regions of the Mediterranean to unearth the best vintages for you. Handsomely packaged.

True to Provençal style, the oil is low on acidity and high on versatility. Beautifully presented in a traditional stoneware bottle and stylish tins and drums. This oil is ideal for those looking for a fruity, mild olive flavor.

CULTIVAR: Arbequina, Hojiblanca and Picual

NOTES: Distinctly sweet, ripe tropical fruit with mild olive flavor. Product of the EU.
