The south of France is home to a modest olive grove known as l'Olivie, which stretches over a meager 67 acres, boasting trees dripping with picholine olives. These sharp pointed fruits were once tiny, but centuries of growth have fattened the new generations of olives so they are plump and fleshy. The olives are painstakingly hand-picked, stone-crushed, and hand-pressed; each tree yields a mere four liters of precious olive oil, skimpy in quantity but intensely high in concentration, yielding a superb quality. The dominant flavor is butter enshrouded in a luscious, creamy texture, and we detect woodsmoke and fresh hay perfumes. Notes of black tea, cooked artichoke, and avocado, are pierced by a bitterness, characteristic of early harvest olives.
