Poitou-Charentes Northwest of France

TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

David Hervé’s Spéciale oysters are a seafood plate classic, cultivated for their sweetness. This comes from years of careful breeding in the Atlantic coast, where their shells have a unique green hue. The balanced, lightly salty taste is complemented by generous hazelnut notes. The mildness of this particular breed makes it universally accessible, a delight for connoisseurs, novices, and even curious children.

PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS

The oyster, that delicacy from the sea, is classically enjoyed in its natural state, freshly shucked and with just a squeeze of lemon on top. Other accoutrements are the tomato-based cocktail sauce or red wine vinegar mignonette. For those who prefer their oysters cooked, cheese toppings and aromatics are a popular way to go.

A GENERATIONAL PASSION

The Hervé family has been farming oysters for three generations in the Marennes-Oléron Basin, a natural region between the sea and marshes that make it Europe’s biggest center for oyster farming. Oysters from this area are the only ones in France that have received the Label Rouge award of quality.

DISCLAIMER ON AVAILABILITY OF PRE-ORDERED AIR-FLOWN ITEMS

This is a pre-ordered item at The Bow Tie Duck and will only be available while the producer from overseas is able to supply and allow air-flown delivery. In case of delivery delays, delivery cancellations, “out of stock” notices, or “out of season” notices after purchase, you will be contacted by our Support Team. You will receive a refund or product replacement, or you can choose a new delivery date for your item. In choosing to place an order, you agree to the terms and have read that this particular product is not on-hand. After a short wait, you will receive your orders fresh from the source.

Storage Instructions

Store your box of fresh, unshucked oysters in your fridge, keeping the temperature between 0 to 5°C. Keep them covered with a damp cloth, flat side up, to increase shelf-life. To enjoy them at their freshest, please consume them within 48 hours.

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.
