Tasting Notes from the Curator
These oysters are the culinary pearls for your palate. Cultured on the French Atlantic coast, Fine de Claire is the favorite oyster of people who love less fleshy and more juicy oysters with a balanced taste. This oyster must be refined in the shallow water of the claires basins, according to a strictly stipulated number of months and a maximum limit on the number of oysters per square meter. The result is a less meaty but juicy oyster rich in water, with translucent or white mantle, an earthy flavor, smooth with an incredible lingering after taste.
There are a variety of recipes you can use to feature these treasures of the sea. You can serve it raw and drizzle it with Mignonette sauce, served chilled and fresh. Or if you’re up for a more filling choice, serve it as a stew or broil it with herbs, seasonings, and butter.
The Best from France
The № of oysters designate the size ( caliber ) of the oyster.
№3 is the medium one, and the favorite caliber of the French people. Each oyster is approximately 66 – 85 grams.
№2 is a bigger size than №3. Each oyster is approximately 86 – 110 grams.
№1 is the 2nd to the largest size. Each oyster is approximately 111 – 150 grams.
These oysters are weekly flown from France, specifically from The Mont-Saint-Michel Bay which is located between Brittany and the Normandy peninsula. The bay is part of the club of the world’s most beautiful bays and is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. The emblematic Fine de Claire Oyster from these lovely waters are recognizable by its typical briny flavour.
