    Description

    Moulin Saint Jean Mas Saint Jean, which dates from the 12th century, is located in the heart of the Alpilles from the valley of La Lèque. The olive-oil mill can be found in the extended grounds of the family residence. The building lies in the shadow of the small Chapel of St Jean, which remained the parish church of Fontvieille until 1670. An olive oil with a protected designation of origin (AOP) The Sourdon family has grown olives for ten generations and has more than 3,000 trees to its name. The Sourdons have been pressing local olives in their Provençal farmhouse or mas since 1998 and extracting an oil olive with a protected designation of origin: AOP la Vallée des Baux. The oil has a golden colour, is blessed with a marked fruitiness and has its own prestigious vintage or cuvée: La Félaurié, the nectar par excellence of olive oils! Moulin Saint Jean’s extra virgin oil is classed as a green, fruity and light oil, with a special character that it exclusive to the mill. The oil is delicate and harmonious with an intricate blend of aromas: dried fruit, apple and artichoke and, with only minimal bitterness and pungency, it meets the criteria of a fine olive oil. Rare, racy and refined, these olive oils are unadorned gastronomic jewels, with La Félaurié the pearl. The olives, which are picked by hand, come from a single estate in Fontvieille that lies at the heart of the special appellation. Everything is studied with care to obtain an oil that is both delicate and subtle. Nothing is left to chance: not the land where the trees are grown nor the ripeness and freshness of the fruit, and even the cuvée is ground separately. The latter is not actually pressed; on the contrary, it is the nectar of all the oils because it comes directly from the sinolea*: the sinolea system uses a mixer and drainer that allows the precious drops of oil to be extracted naturally from the olive paste. They say it is the ‘flower of the olive oil’ or the ‘oil of drops.’ All this, combined with the authenticity of a great terroir and know-how, results in this rare oil that includes the maximum number of antioxidants, which makes it even more outstanding. It is delicate at first taste, then grows in range, expressing great richness and complexity. It is, in short, a prestigious and exclusive olive oil in the image of a fine wine. After Jean Paul Sourdon, a master miller, retired in 2010, his daughters took over the helm to ensure the continuation of the ancestral skills. Anne and Magali have been bathed in an atmosphere where toil and tradition reign supreme since they were children, and they also worked alongside their father for 14 years. Like him, they have a true passion for the soil of the Baux valley and its major olive cultivation. The Sourdon family organises private tours; ask at the shop. Come and join in Anne and Magali’s passion, which they share all year long in their private property together with family stories. At the end of your tour you can taste the fruit of the year’s harvest, served by an official taster. It is an oil that excites the taste buds with its extraordinary freshness and its unmissable aroma of almonds, hazelnuts and cooked artichokes.
