Louis Sel Gourmet Sea Salt Makes Every Dish A Gourmet Meal
The Sel Marin forms at the bottom of the crystallizers, where it combines with mineral-rich clay. After they hand-harvest the salt, Gilles and Matthieu sift through the crystals and mix them with high-quality, organic herbs – giving it the unique flavors that you taste. The same method is used for the Fleur de Sel, which is delicately skimmed from the surface of the crystallizers. Like our sea salt, Louis Sel Gourmet Sea Salt is pure and natural. To preserve its authentic taste, it is left to dry naturally in the sun.
Morel et Le Chantoux pride themselves in harvesting Louis Sel Gourmet Sea Salt following the traditions of the French Terroir Guérandais and the methods of their ancestors. This, combined with their independent nature, protects the subtle taste and quality of the salts now exclusively available to U.S. consumers.

Pure and natural. These sea salts are all harvested manually, retaining many essential, natural trace elements along with the essence of the Atlantic.

An avid Francophile and gourmet, Karen Pevenstein first met Gilles and Matthieu – and their hand-harvested salts – at a Parisian food fair.
After trying it, Karen immediately fell in love with these unique products. She searched for equivalents in specialty shops in the U.S. but never found anything that came close to the flavor and refinement of these salts. When she gave them as gifts to her friends, they soon discovered the wonders of how this special, “magic salt” can transform their everyday cooking.
After visiting Guérande and spending time with Gilles and Matthieu on their salt marsh, she is delighted to bring their enchanting products to America as the exclusive U.S. distributor of Morel et Le Chantoux. Once you try it, she promises you’ll be hooked…and so will your kitchen!
