ABOUT HUILE H DOMAINE LEOS
The oils H of Leos are largely dominated by the Aglandau, a variety that is perfectly adapted to the terroir of the Domaine, which possesses fruits that are ovoid in shape, slightly asymmetrical, firm and pulpy, and isolated on the branches. The Aglandau variety is characterised by its smoothness, its intensity, and its surprising and very rich taste with flavourings of artichoke, green (olive leaf), green fruits (with or without pit), and notably cooked pear, banana, almond, and apple.
With the Aglandau variety, L’Huile H of Domaine Leos defines itself as an « aromatic and strong fruity green », meaning a lively oil, with a powerful intensity, slightly peppered (see testimonies of major Chefs and experts). L’Huile H also incorporates several other varieties of olives in smaller quantities including the Picholine, which historically comes from the Collias region (Gard); the Hojiblanca, originating from Andalousia; the Cornicabra from the Toledo region; the rougette from Ardeche; and the Arbequines, which are very useful for pollination (as the bees don’t visit olive tree flowers!).
Leos H oils are all "extra virgin", which means that they are high-quality oils obtained only from the fruit of the olive tree through mechanical processes or under thermal conditions that do not alter the oil. In extra virgin oil, nothing is added or removed. Everything is natural. It is also a guarantee for consumers that they have a very low acidity (oleic acid content of less than 0.8%) and that they have remarkable and superior taste qualities (a quality and luxury oil). Every year, H de Léos oils have an oleic acid content of less than 0.4%, which places them at the highest level of quality. It is also a "premier cold extraction" oil (a decanter is used, and no second pressing is done by adding hot water, as was often done in the past.).
The health benefits of extra virgin olive oil:
it is rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E and polyphenols, which is confirmed by a large number of international studies.
