A classic oyster with a strict production process.
They are raised in the sea beds around Marennes for a duration of three to four years, after which they are brought to "sea-pools" around the farm for a duration of 4 weeks at low density (only 3kg per sq.meter), during which time they will develop and refine their flavor and strengthen their shell.
Its flesh is thin and tender with a flesh mass averaging 7 to 10,5% of its total weight. Its delicate flavor is evocative of the scent of the ocean.
If you order these oysters by 4 pm on Wednesday you will receive them the following Tuesday.
