Huitres Amelie – HUITRES AMELIE
Added August 6th '16
Finished in the famous claires (clay ponds) of the Marennes Oléron basin on France’s Atlantic coast, these oysters were praised for a “meaty texture with a clean mineral twang and sweet finish that lingered on the palate”. One judge felt as though they were “immersed in the sea”, while another was “reminded of holidays rock pooling, with all the fresh salty flavours of the sea”.
