A smooth and sweet 45% milk chocolate from French maker François Pralus. Made from Javan Criollo beans. This chocolate has a wonderful creamy and chocolatey flavour with hints of banana, caramel and honey.
The beans are grown, harvested, and fermented with care and then roasted and transformed into a delightful chocolate in his Roanne facility. Good aromatic intensity, well balanced, vanilla and caramel aromas, mild and milky spices. 45% cocoa content – a high percentage of cocoa for a milk chocolate (the average runs about 30%).
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.

Exceptional milk chocolate – distinctive and balanced. Great mouthfeel – long breakdown with a slightly grainy texture. Not overly sweet in character and revealing intriguing flavours of saffron, butter fudge and even some vegetal backnotes. Really excellent stuff.
