Gillardeau oysters are cultivated for four years, following strict rules that have been passed down for
four generations.Nine months after birth and a period in containers in oyster parks, they are placed
in bags and submerged for more than three years in deep water, rich in phyto-plankton that forms
the essential basis of their food intake. Their density is kept deliberately low so that each one is
sufficiently well nourished and has the space required for its growth. The Gillardeau has a rich taste
and nutty flavor.
