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.

Prepa­ra­tion

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 â„– of oys­ters des­ig­nate the size ( cal­iber ) of the oyster. 

  • â„–3 is the medi­um one, and the favorite cal­iber of the French peo­ple. Each oys­ter is approx­i­mate­ly 66 – 85 grams. 

  • â„–2 is a big­ger size than â„–3. Each oys­ter is approx­i­mate­ly 86 – 110 grams.

  • â„–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.
