Château Calissanne Cocorico Collection

Embodying the estate’s very essence

The Château Calissanne Cocorico collection takes its name from the same product marketed over a century ago by the Etablissements Verminck company, which was run by Charles-Auguste Verminck, the former owner of Château Calissanne.
This range includes Château Calissanne’s iconic products that have contributed to its reputation.
It includes three types of oil (fruité vert, fruité vert intense and olives maturées) as well as a rosé, the quintessential Provence wine.

The Matured Olive flavor was awarded the gold medal at the 2024 General Agricultural Competition at the 2024 International Agricultural Show.

The “fruité vert”, a harmonious blend of Salonenque and Aglandau, offers a symphony of freshness and vitality, embodying the sun-kissed olive orchards ador ning the north-eastern expanse of the estate. Produced from the first cold pressing, this oil captivates with its invigorating freshness and hints of chlorophyll.
Pairing suggestions: mixed salads, vegetables, pasta…

The “fruité vert intense”, blending Aglandau, Salonenque and Picholine, reveals vegetal aromas whose mentholated and herbaceous notes distinguish it from its counterpart, the “fruité vert”.
Pairing suggestions: grilled vegetables, fish, cheese…

The “olives maturées” is a quintessentially Provençal variety of matured olive oil.
Crafted from same Aglandau and Salonenque olives that grace the “fruité vert” these olives arrive at the mill green. However, rather than undergoing immediate pressing within 24 hours, they are stored away from light and air for 4 to 5 days at 30°C, a process that tempers the natural ardour of the fruit.
This oil is characterised by the rounded flavours of black olives and black tapenade. Subtle hints of undergrowth, truffles and candied fruit are discernible on the nose, with occasional whispers of cocoa lingering in the mouth.
Pairing suggestions: burrata, focaccia, mashed potatoes, chocolate mousse…

Collection Cocorico Château Calissanne

The cock crows at Château Calissanne

The name of our new range was inspired by the label of a product marketed in the 19th century by the Établissements Verminck company. Verminck, whose name was once synonymous with soap and oil production in Marseille, was also a former custodian of the Calissanne estate.

Today, comprising three olive oils and a rosé cuvée, the Château Calissanne Cocorico collection is produced in perfect harmony with the Château’s commitment to excellence and tradition, inviting both seasoned connoisseurs and curious novices alike to discover and celebrate the best of France through its unique flavours.
