Air-flown Live Tarbouriech Oyster Bouzigues

The original, the classic

The orig¬≠i¬≠nal and clas¬≠sic Tar¬≠bouriech oys¬≠ter, made in the depths of the gor¬≠geous Thau Lagoon. Bouzigues oys¬≠ter sizes are defined as N4 being the small¬≠est and N1 being the biggest. 


These oys­ters are the first kinds Mai­son Tar­bouriech grew and farmed, and they have com­plete­ly per­fect­ed the long­stand­ing tra­di­tion of oys­ter-farm­ing. This is their clas­sic and orig­i­nal selec­tion, mak­ing use of time-proven meth­ods passed down from gen­er­a­tions of Mar­seil­lan families.

The Tar¬≠bouriech Bouzigues is a nut¬≠ty oys¬≠ter, with a well-ser¬≠rat¬≠ed and beau¬≠ti¬≠ful mar¬≠bled shell. Though not made with the use of The Solar Tide, these shell¬≠fish are incred¬≠i¬≠bly sup¬≠ple and suc¬≠cu¬≠lent, and will melt in your mouth.

It has an unde¬≠ni¬≠able and rec¬≠og¬≠niz¬≠able fresh¬≠ness, beau¬≠ti¬≠ful iodiza¬≠tion, and with a won¬≠der¬≠ful but sub¬≠tle hazel¬≠nut flavor.

Pop¬≠u¬≠lar choice for this type of oys¬≠ter is N3 Box of 48 (with a size nei¬≠ther too big nor too small) and per¬≠fect for shar¬≠ing for a din¬≠ner of 5‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ6.

If you‚Äôre hav¬≠ing a par¬≠ty, big¬≠ger por¬≠tions are avail¬≠able with N2 Box of 128 being a good choice to serve.


Tar¬≠bouriech Bouzigues are best enjoyed on their own at its fresh¬≠est state, with only a squeeze of lemon. 

If you‚Äôre look¬≠ing to cel¬≠e¬≠brate, pop a bot¬≠tle of our rec¬≠om¬≠mend¬≠ed cel¬≠e¬≠bra¬≠to¬≠ry sparkling wine that is Bohi¬≠gas Brut Reser¬≠va Cava. This cava will har¬≠mo¬≠nize the acid¬≠i¬≠ty and salti¬≠ness of the Bouzigues and give you a slight hint of sug¬≠ar on the tongue. 


The Thau Lagoon in Mar¬≠seil¬≠lan has a long¬≠stand¬≠ing cul¬≠ture of oys¬≠ter farm¬≠ing. It has excep¬≠tion¬≠al rich¬≠ness, bal¬≠anc¬≠ing between fresh water, and the vast Mediter¬≠ranean Sea. The sun¬≠shine and beau¬≠ti¬≠ful cli¬≠mate of the South of France make the waters abun¬≠dant in phy¬≠to¬≠plank¬≠ton, thus mak¬≠ing Thau Lagoon impor¬≠tant to marine bio life, nour¬≠ish¬≠ing both shell¬≠fish and fish.

All of these con­di­tions make Tar­bouriech Bouzigues oys­ters extra­or­di­nar­i­ly full-fla­vored and delicious.
