Another nice addition to the ‘Edition Limitée’ series from Morin – in addition to the very extensive range of other origin chocolates, the French master chocolatier from Provence makes a number of smaller editions of cocoa of special origin. So in this case from Congo – a dark chocolate with 63% cocoa.
Striking is the subtly grainier structure than with other Morin chocolates, and also the taste. Described by the makers as:
A very fruity chocolate, with taste notes of caramelized lemon, blackcurrant and then notes of butter and praline.
We certainly also tasted a nice transition, towards notes of burnt sugar and almost like a hazelnut bonbon – including some bitter notes more towards walnut and coffee. The fruity (sour) is there, as far as we’re concerned, but think of the combination with the dark/roasted flavor tones that alternate.
Ingredients: cocoa, cane sugar cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin.
Allergy note from the makers: may contain traces of nuts, peanuts, sesame and milk.
