The beans from this bar hail from Trinidad, the birthplace of Trinitario cacao. This is an intensely earthy dark chocolate bar from the ever popular French maker Pralus. As the chocolate melts, you’ll discover layer after layer of grassy notes. With hints of grilled asparagus and hints of truffle, this is a decidedly savoury bar.
Overall, this is a wonderfully well balanced bar, with hints of acidity at the finish that act as the ideal counterpoint to the initial alkaline muddiness. In this ever so aromatic bar, we found a quite unique herbal flavour that is sure to appeal to those who love floral chocolate.
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.
