- Special Geay: an oyster that is the simple expression of the producer's manual skills. It is to be considered the "family selection", it grows in the open sea and is refined in the salt pans of Marennes Oleron for about two months before being sold. This technique gives the oyster sweetness and a delicate nutty taste.
- Fine de Claire Verte: the green-gilled oyster, you will notice a splendid emerald shade due to the Navicula Blu algae that proliferates in the aging salt flats only from October to April. This seaweed gives the oyster a sweet and blue taste similar to the best blue cheeses
- Fine de Claire: the most famous and well-known oyster in the region, like the other selections, it is aged in the salt pans for about 30/40 days, with a higher density of oysters. This determines a lower rate of meat, therefore a more marked flavor and more decisive notes of dried fruit.
