To answer to the diversity of tastes, Jean-Jacques CADORET brings up various kinds of oysters.
Because no oyster looks like the other one!
The Flat Oyster
The « Fine » of Brittany
The « Fine de Claire » from Marennes Oléron
These oysters of 3 years brought up in deep water, follow a first refining on our oyster beds in CARANTEC and benefit from a second refining during 2 months, in the famous Bélon river.
3 years old Rock Oysters transferred for a first 6 months refining period, to the CARANTEC Bay, on specific high oyster beds which are reversed to perfect their quality.
Oysters brought up in Brittany, Normandy or in “Marennes Oléron” refined in “Claire” from where their name “Fines de Claire”, comes. Their flesh can, according to the seasons, take a green colour inside.
The SPECIAL OYSTERS
The BLACK PEARL
The « Pousses en claire »
When they are mature, the 4 years oysters are transferred on discovering oyster beds subjected to the magic of the flow and the ebb, in waters softened by the river during several months. Oysters get more and more fine and subtle. The firm, crunchy and very thick flesh, becomes velvety under the tooth, with its taste of hazelnut and this tiny defers sweet touch, which give them a very special style.
It is special, fleshy and crunchy oysters, from Utah Beach in Normandy and refined in river of Bélon during 3 months to perfect their taste without modifying the typical characteristics of their flesh.
They result from a meticulous work of preparation of the « claires ». Their flesh is just like the Special, except that their colour is pearlier with a rounder shape. Their flavour is sweetened and goes on for a long time in mouth. The « Pousse en Claire » is an exceptionnal Oyster.
Shellfishes and Crustaceans
Our range of shellfishes is extremely rich: tellines, vernis, praire clam, mussels, cockles, clams, hard-shell clams, dog cockles … and whelks, winkles.
During the season, we propose scallops and sea urchins from Brittany, also.
We keep the best place to the blue Lobster, undisputed Lord of Breton waters.
