The La Tourangelle Black Truffle Oil is made with a relatively neutral base of grapeseed oil which is slowly infused with natural black truffle aroma. The La Tourangelle Black Truffle Oil possesses a strong, intense, earthy flavour, which will bring a beautiful aroma to your dishes. This rare oil will pair especially well with pasta, mashed potatoes, meat and numerous other dishes.
La Tourangelle was founded over 150 years ago as a small animal-powered oil mill, in the idyllic French town of Saumur. Originally, all along the Loire river, there were small artisan oil mills that roasted and extracted the oil from nuts gathered by local farmers. La Tourangelle is one of just a handful of these remaining mills that keep this tradition alive. In the early 1990’s ownership passed to the Kohlmeyer family and La Tourangelle entered in a renaissance phase that saw its business expand internationally fueled by a passion for promoting specialty oils.
