At Estoublon, the only harvesting method used is hand picking. The owners of Chateau d'Estoublon have chosen to exceed the AOP requirements and to reduce this processing time to 24 hours. The health of the fruit is the best guarantee of olive oil quality.
Grossane: Elegant, Sweet and Light. Discrete on the palate, la Grossane develops aromas of citrus fruit. It goes quite well with a salad of marinated scallops, fruit salad, particularly strawberries with a bit of lemon juice.
Bouteillan: Balanced, Aromatic, Complex. La Bouteillan develops aromas of asparagus tips, sweet tomato leaves and green apple. Use on steamed vegetables, or a tomato salad and on all fillets of fish before serving.
Picholine: Pungent, Fiery, Pepper. La Picholine is a wonderful flavor enhancer. Very typical, it brings out the lettuce like flavor of early vegetables, on smoked fish, carpaccio as well as on steak tartar with a slice of lemon. Also excellent on sherberts and ice creams!
