La Spéciale de Claire | Marennes Oléron oysters
This is an oyster specially selected by the producer before finishing for its regular shape, its roundness and depth.
A deeper concavity in the shell shows a larger quantity of flesh.
On tasting, the special de claire is distinct from the fine de claire by a firmer texture to the flesh, the volume in the mouth and a remarkable balance of sweetness and salt.
These oysters are finished for several weeks in shallow clay ponds where they acquire a quality which is clearly superior to those from the open sea.
