The Tsars of Russia were avid consumers of oysters, and it was in honour of this fact that in 2004 the “Tsarskaya » oyster was born. Selected straight from the spat this oyster is farmed for 3 to 4 years at the heart of the farm, and is then nurtured in a very specific and careful way. It will delight enthusiasts with its fullness, white flesh and being firm to crunchy.
It is powerful on the palette, pure and with a taste of iodine, and one chew evokes a taste reminiscent of the best quality Argentinean beef, crunchy and tender, then releasing a sugary flavour that tastes almost like sweet almonds. The « Tsarskaya » takes time to diffuse all the taste buds, before adding a slight hint of acidity at the end, similar to that touch of tannin in a « Grand cru » wine.
