Maker's notes
(Translated from French)
The Cocoa “Grands Crus” are selected by Stephane Bonnat, “Maitre Chocolatier in “Voiron - Chartreuse” (ndlr: near Grenoble, France). All the cocoa arrive in Voiron from the best plantations in the world as beans, in order to be roasted and converted into these chocolate bars that you are about to discover, compare and enjoy.

(Translated from French)
"Puira Blanco”
The cacao bean used for Piura is a of the white bean “Crioollo” variety coming directly from the Alto Piura valley in Peru. Harvested in altitude on the sides of a mountain by twelve organisations of small growers forming the community of Quemazon. This cacao produces a pale chocolate with lightly acidulated and fruity aromas.

Tasting Experience
The aromas escaping when opening the wrapper are mostly acidulated cacao. The creamy texture (thanks to the added cacao butter), delivers a progressive stream of fruity sweetness with a very light tobacco notes in the background. The after taste is long and chocolatey. This excellent chocolate will please the tasters who appreciate chocolatey sensations.
