Husband and wife team, Zsolt Szabad and Katalin Csiszar started Rózsavölgyi Csokoládé in Budapest in 2004. Zsolt’s background as a nengineer and Katalin’s as a graphic designer has resulted in the perfect team to produce chocolate bars that are both beautiful and expertly made.
Rózsavölgyi’s bars are moulded to look like a traditional fireplace tile and beautifully wrapped in thick paper. This 72% dark chocolate bar is made with Peruvian Gran Nativo Blanco cocoa beans grown by Cacao Tales.
When opening up this bar, it is distinctly light in colour, with even on taste it starts its flavour like a milk chocolate. During the melt, bold acidic and citrus juicy notes freshen the palate. The chocolate is remarkably layered in its flavour experience, with both high notes and low notes. The finish lingers a rich chocolatey lower note, making for an utterly satisfying denouement for the chocolate.

A bit creamier than their Mababu- also a little more mellow and sweeter despite hints of earthiness and lime. Detectable hints of fruity and floral notes. It could have a bit more character.

Very fruity and sour, lots of lemon all the way to the finish. A bit too simplistic, but interesting.
