The best for the gourmands and the others…


Fine of Claire

Here is the product that is the favorite of the amateurs. Fine, not very fleshy, delicate, the Fines de Claires are a delight.

Claire’s Fine takes several weeks to refine in its shallow clay basins. Nourished by the sun and the movements of the sea, its shell becomes stronger and acquires a superior quality.

Refining is an important step in the conditioning process of this oyster. This is how Claire’s Fine finds its subtle and balanced flavors.


Fine of Claire Verte

First product of the sea

labelled in 1989

An oyster of superior quality! This is how we could define this jewel of flavors.

La Fine de Claire Verte is Label Rouge certified. This official label obtained by the French Ministry of Agriculture rewards an oyster whose production and maturing process is strict. This standard, which is subject to rigorous controls, is a real guarantee of quality and flavour.

The Fine de Claire Verte is a treat for lovers of oysters with little meatiness. During a few weeks, this oyster develops in shallow clay basins, bathed in sunlight and rocked by the tides, it acquires a green hue characteristic of the gills and of the breeding in Claire. This color is a precise mark of an oyster which fed on the blue navicle (micro alga), the oyster retains the pigment: The marennine.
