Fine de Claire Verte

Fine de Claire Verte

Marenne-Oleron   Map

Famous oyster from the largest oyster-producing region in the world. The oysters are finished in knee-deep claire (rectangular salt ponds) for a minimum of one month, during which they fatten and take on a sweeter, fruitier flavor from the water and phytoplankton in the ponds. Unlike regular Fines de Claire, the green ones are finished in ponds containing the Blue Navicula algae, which turns their gills jade and supposedly enriches their flavor. Louis XIV was a fan.
