Fine De Claire Oysters and Special Daniel Sorlut Oysters are characterized by a tasty flavor, with an intense nutty final taste due to the cold and calm waters where they live. For centuries, these oysters have been farmed in large natural pools rich in nutritious seaweed along France's Charente-Maritime coast. These special concave oysters are fed with marine phytoplankton, which is the basic ingredient for a balanced diet, rich in nutrients that make the flesh tasty, rich and so refined.
