Tasting Experience Opening Alain Ducasse' signature "envelope" delivers a very strong cacao flavor including the chocolaty bitterness typical of beans from Sao Tome. Whiel melting in on the tongue, the bar confirms the chocolaty aroma, adding cooper notes, earthy scents and hints of pepper and tobacco. All these sensations are enhanced by a mild acidity that underlines the aromas. The after taste is long and consistent with melting sensations. Overall, and excellent chocolate for people looking for cacao strength, bitterness and earthiness.
