Les Terroirs de Marrakech

Ultra-Premium Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The ultra-premium extra virgin olive oil coming from the old centenary orchard surrounding the Family House in the Marrakech estate.
In the beautiful flat land at the foot of the High Atlas, where even Baron de Rothschild used to cultivate his grapes, you find the historic centenary olive grove belonged to Mr Breton. Our family carries on this century-old tradition producing what is likely to be the best pure Moroccan extra virgin olive oil we reserve to the real connoisseur and gourmet all over the world.

Oil description

A genuine expression of the terroir.

Aroma > Complex green aromas of aromatic hedgerows, cut grass, culinary herbs and apples. There are also hints of fresh lemon, tomato and nuts.

Taste > Equally complex tones in the mouth with fresh nuts and hedge clippings followed by tobacco leaves, watercress and bitter almond skins. The fresh nuts and herbs join with dried fruits to carry on through the mounting bitterness and pepper to maintain a harmonious flavour. The lingering after taste takes in more dried fruits and herbs ending with a touch of malted nuts and milk chocolate.

Style > This is a medium to strong oil which is very well balanced. The bitterness and pepper are never over aggressive.

Overall Assessment > This is a very good oil which stands comparison with similar styles of oil from anywhere else in the world. It could certainly hold its own as a mono-varietal oil. This is an oil suitable for many culinary combinations and for dipping.

Suggestions

A touch of Morocco in your dish.

Native to Provence, Languedoc, and Corsica, this fine specimen olive variety’s oil will be ideal served with dishes of Southern France and Mediterranean area. While it can be used to lightly sauté vegetables, and is very acceptable as seasoned dipping oil, it is best suited on salads and served over your favorite dishes. We can also try it drizzled lightly on plain white or wild rice or mushroom and pea Risotto or rice pilaf. However it is, this excellent extra virging olive oil adds a refined touch to your dishes.
