  • Description

    The Bonnat family have been making chocolate in Voiron, France for over 130 years. It was current head Stephane Bonnat’s parents, Raymond and Nicole Bonnat who pioneered Bonnat’s first single origin bars in the 1980’s. Stephane has continued his parent’s tradition and the company now works with 35 different plantations worldwide to produce their bars.

    As ever with Bonnat, this bar has a thick and buttery texture. Do not be deceived by this dark milk chocolate – while the milk gives the bar a certain sweetness the high cocoa percentage means that this bar doesn’t have the caramel-like quality of some milk chocolates. Instead of the overwhelming sugary taste of many mass-produced milk chocolates, the bar has smokey flavour notes with a touch of berry beneath the surface.

    As with Papuan chocolate, Indonesian cacao is dried with the help of open fires whose smoke infuses the beans with a distinctive aroma, resulting in the highly unusual flavour notes typical of bars from these countries. This smoked flavour is particularly intriguing in a milk chocolate, giving the bar a more savoury note. Bonnat’s dark milk bars are well worth a try,  both for milk and dark chocolate lovers.

      Lovely texture but the flavour was too noticeably smoky for me.

      Like some other dark mills from this brand, the bar had some notes that were a little sour towards the end and reminiscent of blue cheese. A bit odd for me. Lovely texture but would buy a different bar from this brand in future.

      Lovely thick buttery bar, slightly waxy texture gives a nice melting texture in the mouth. Soft sweet vanilla background but not at all sugary
