The "vintage" sardines in oil from La Quiberonnaise are the most traditional recipe in the house. They come from the south of France, and we can honestly say that they have become one of our favorite canned sardines, in addition to their exuberant and smooth body, their texture and flavor: we do not exaggerate when we say that they are a caress to the palate, nothing gets in the way or bothers you, not even the extra virgin olive oil from the first press that bathes them. A delicate preserve that we are proud to have in our catch. Do not forget to keep a can in a safe place, and turn it around, to consume in a few years.

Many of the wines, cheeses or preserves that we sell, we are told by someone from the Coalla team, overflowing with enthusiasm, convincing others to get together immediately and start an "open and test" dance that, as on this occasion, usually finish quickly, with the unanimous roundabout of the staff there. In that hard work we had when we tried the sardines with Bordier butter from La Quiberonnaise without having a clue what we had in mind. We open the can and pounce fork in hand to try, looking convinced that it was a supreme marvel, regardless of the fact that it takes a pre-tasting process as simple as necessary. Do not worry, we will explain it to you so that you do not fall into the pleasant "error". After this experience, we got down to work to get our “vintage” sardines, smoked oysters and fish broth.
The La Quiberonnaise facilities are located in the fishing port on the Quiberon peninsula in French Brittany and, for almost a century, have been passionately and artisanally canning the freshest fish they can get. The quality of its preserves is recognized by the most refined chefs.
