Air-flown Live Fine De Ronce Oysters Special Easter Box by David Hervé
Lulled by the waves
Not far from Ronce-les-Bains, this oyster is lulled by the waves, the spray and the currents of the Atlantic Ocean.
Tasting Notes from the Curator
The Fine de Ronce is another great oyster from famous oyster farmer David Hervé. This farm is beautifully located in Charente-Maritime, the region located between Bordeaux and Marans. Specifically, this oyster is cultivated in Marennes Oléron, in the most southern ponds in the area named Ronce. Fine de Ronce oysters are placed in the claires, or oyster ponds, at the age of 30–36 months, for a period of 2 years. After this period, the flesh would be around 16% of its total weight.
Comes in a festive Easter box of Size N3, 24 pieces.
Enjoy this Fine de Ronce as is. Best enjoyed fresh. Pair with a Pol Roger Brut Reserve.
SHARING THE EXCEPTION
That is the Hervé family slogan. The oyster farm has been operational since 1939, and they use only traditional breeding methods to raise oysters of exceptional quality. Their mollusks are allowed to mature for 6 to 8 months, given enough room so that each individual specimen can flourish. They own about 3 hectares of marine space, benefiting from the ebb and flow of the Atlantic currents, and allowing them to maintain the strictest and highest standards of oyster farming.

When you’re ready to shuck your oysters, take a sharp knife (a vegetable knife or, ideally, an oyster shucking knife) and hold the oyster, round-side down and pointed side facing you, between a tea towel. Wiggle the knife into the pointy end and twist it until the shell comes open.
