La maison LEGRIS

Archipel de Lilia

Oyster lovers favor this appellation for its sweetness, its nutty taste, its fine flesh. Its rarity makes it a very fine and delicate dish very much in demand.

Belons

The so-called “special” oyster is fleshy. On 100% of the animal there is more than 10.5% of flesh. It can be recognized by its teardrop shape and its very specific concavity (the shell is hollow and more rounded.). The TAILLEPIED family is one of the pioneers in producing this high quality oyster in the Bay of Veys in Normandy. (100% born at sea / 100% natural therefore not triploid)

Marennes-Oléron oysters benefit from a particular breeding and maturing technique: they are matured and matured in clear; they are clay basins that fill up when the tide rises and they conserve water when the sea recedes. The oysters go “clear” after 2 years in the parks, which gives them a particular flavor, specific to this terroir.
