Les Baux de Provence Olive Oil “Les Baux”

Moulin Jean-Marie Cornille

Les Baux de Provence Olive Oil “Les Baux” Moulin Jean-Marie Cornille - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Moulin Cornille's richly flavored oil comes from the picturesque olive groves around Les Baux de Provence. This particular terroir, renowned enough for its oils to have earned appellation status in 1997, lies in the shadow of the limestone peaks of the Alpilles mountains, where olive trees thrive in the hot, dry Mediterranean climate. A blend of five olive varieties are picked ripe to create this smooth, velvety oil without a hint of bitterness. It is bottled unfiltered for your drizzling pleasure.

About Provence

Perhaps there is no region more closely aligned with the history to Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant than Provence. Provence is where Richard Olney, an American ex-pat and friend of Alice Waters, lived, and introduced Kermit to the great producers of Provence, most importantly Domaine Tempier of Bandol. Kermit also spends upwards of half his year at his home in a small town just outside of Bandol.

Vitis vinifera first arrived in France via Provence, landing in the modern day port city of Marseille in the 6th century BC. The influence of terroir on Provençal wines goes well beyond soil types. The herbs from the pervasive scrubland, often referred to as garrigue, as well as the mistral—a cold, drying wind from the northwest that helps keep the vines free of disease—play a significant role in the final quality of the grapes. Two more elements—the seemingly ever-present sun and cooling saline breezes from the Mediterranean—lend their hand in creating a long growing season that result in grapes that are ripe but with good acidity.

Rosé is arguably the most well known type of wine from Provence, but the red wines, particularly from Bandol, possess a great depth of character and ability to age. The white wines of Cassis and Bandol offer complexity and ideal pairings for the sea-influenced cuisine. Mourvèdre reigns king for red grapes, and similar to the Languedoc and Rhône, Grenache, Cinsault, Marsanne, Clairette, Rolle, Ugni Blanc among many other grape varieties are planted.
