THE POUSSE EN CLAIRE OYSTER CHIRONFILS
The Pousse en Claire oyster is an exceptional oyster. The oyster farmers used to savour this oyster as a privilege between insiders and did not wanted to sell this oyster. The Pousse en Claire is finished in our Claires, shallow basins with clay with a great light penetration, suitable for the oyster food development, during 4 to 8 months with only 2 oysters per square metre. Thanks to the particular nutritional quality of the claire, the oyster will double or triple its flesh volume and its weight, acquiring an inimitable firmness and flavour typical of the region. The oyster is taking the time to develop its growth in harmony with its environment, this is the reason of its exceptional quality.
