A higher cocoa dark chocolate with a strong, bittersweet and woody aroma with underlying notes of roasted cocoa nibs. Created from a blend of cocoas and described by Valrhona as 'the ultimate in responsibly made chocolates'.
Valrhona, a French master chocolate maker.
Since 1922 the vocation of Valrhona has been to create exceptional gourmet chocolate, while respecting the artisan's know-how and fine French taste. Dedicated to quality, Valrhona selects and purchases its cocoa beans directly from choice plantations, thus securing an exclusive supply of Grand Crus from South America, the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean. Valrhona was one of the first chocolatiers to describe their chocolate in a similar fashion to wine with the labelling of such creations as grand cru, single origin, single estate and even vintage chocolate. Valrhona is regarded as being amongst the best of the few French chocolate makers today creating their chocolate from bean to bar (cacaofevier).
