Did you know?

The oyster called Marennes-Oléron has a unique colour, with a bluish sheen. This colour is due to the presence of microscopic algae within its body. Due to the temperate climate and the clay soil in which it was produced, it gives off very delicate aromas. This is why it is the only type of oyster with a red label in France.
