Huîtres à Volant
Huîtres à Volant is a special selection of oysters from Normandy with a meat percentage above 10.5%.
With its long beaches and steep chalk cliffs, Normandy is home to superb oyster grounds and has become one of the leading oyster-producing regions of France in recent decades.
Aided by the significant tidal difference, the oysters filter plenty of nutrient-rich seawater every day. Huîtres à Volant oysters can be recognised by their hard, sturdy and slightly rougher shell. This bold oyster from Normandy has a fresh, salty taste.
This oyster has been selected by World of Oysters. World of Oysters is in daily contact with a selected group of passionate growers growing this type of oyster. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information and prices.
