Les "Authentiques"

(Appellation d'Origine Protégée)

Created in Europe in 1992 as an extension of the AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) label

The AOP label (Appellation d’Origine Protégée) designates a product for which all of the production stages (production, processing and development) are carried out according to recognized expertise within the same geographical area which gives its characteristics to the product. The product is thus indivisible from its terroir and cannot be reproduced in other areas. The production, processing and development must absolutely take place on the territory according to the rules set out in the specifications.
