2001 vintage of Valrhonaâ€™s single domain Trinidadian chocolate. Bursting with tangerine flavour, a good choice for those preferring a less bitter chocolate. It is however a little insubstantial, lacking the depth of other Valrhona offerings.

As usual from Valrhona a fine looking chocolate, with a stimulating Ã¢â‚¬ËœhighÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ aroma with shades of Stilton. Once in the mouth very smooth with a cool refreshing melt quickly exploding into a flood of tangerine-citrus with a hint of bitter background notes of tobacco and strong green tea. The citrus fades into a pleasant milkyness, after which this chocolate has little left to say, leaving the mouth somewhat unfulfilled. Length is slightly sour and a little waxy, and fades fairly quickly, but is not at all bad.
A good chocolate, but maybe not as good as it first seems.
