The Crude olive oil has arrived!
Crude olive oil differs from traditional oils. Barely harvested, it is already bottled. It is La Belle Excuse which offers us the exclusivity of its first olive harvest of the year with its extra virgin oil. A fresh oil, with a magnificent golden color and blurred consistency. It has a clean olive taste and a peppery flavor that everyone loves!
The harvest of small black olives called Mavrolïa is done directly in the Trifilia-Méssinia region, Greece, at the end of October. Harvested before their full maturity, this is what makes it possible to produce such a smooth oil.
Unlike most olive oils which are only available on the market from spring, 6 months after the olive harvest, crude oils are available soon after harvest. Directly picked, the olives are pressed and bottled the same day.
