This 80% dark bar from French chocolate maker Pralus is a fantastic exploration into the possibilities of craft chocolate. A measured aroma of vanilla becomes slightly bitter as it hits the tongue, melting into exuberant notes of milk and mild spice.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Pralus has been making patisserie and baked treats in Roanne, France, since 1948. Auguste Pralus quickly became famous for his Praluline, a gorgeous brioche packed with rose-sugar-coated pieces of almonds and hazelnuts. Auguste’s son François is now at the helm, and Pralus has become famous the world over for its fabulous chocolate. François is a master chocolate maker – he’s always on the lookout for new cocoa beans and has recently bought his own farm on the Madagascan island of Nosy Be.
