A Grand Cru or pure origin chocolate is above all a terroir associated to a variety of cocoa. A Grand Cru chocolate means that :
- All the beans used for its manufacture come from the same area (village, town, delimited area within a country) except for the cocoa butter.
- Their origin is traced and mentioned in the list of ingredients on the packaging of the tablet.
Each Grand Cru has its own specificities (climate, type of cultivation) and techniques (fermentation, drying of beans). Just like wine, there is no chocolate but rather chocolates with different aromatic profiles. Adjusting the percentage of cocoa to the terroir allows the palette of aromas of the origin to come out during the tasting.
Our Grand Cru chocolate tablets have a high cocoa content, ranging from 72% to 98% cocoa. Each percentage of cocoa is worked according to the origin of the beans with a fine balance between cocoa mass, cocoa butter and cane sugar, in a chocolate spirit.
