Farmed in La Rochelle and the Île d'Oléron in western France, Gillardeau Speciales Oysters are some of the finest French rock oysters on the market.
Gillardeau Speciales Oysters have a really sweet taste with notes of dried fruit. They also have a firm and thick meat and a slight crunch.
From their shell shape to their flesh rate, the oysters on the farm are checked daily to ensure that they are of the highest quality possible. The salinity, oxygen rate and overall quality of the water pools are regularly checked, as this can affect the growth of the oysters.
This attention to detail gives Gillardeau Speciales Oysters their generous flesh and unique, delicious flavour.
Serve Gillardeau Speciales Oysters with a slice of lemon, a little tabasco or a mignonette dressing for the perfect gourmet starter.
