Neuhaus – Extra Dark 70% Cocoa

Acceptable bar from Neuhaus with some pleasant citrus moments, but dominated by burnt almonds and strong coffee with a less than perfect length

Valrhona – Chuao 2001

Valrhona’s 2001 vintage Chuao. A good, top quality chocolate that doesn’t stand out from the crowd as much as examples from previous years

Valrhona – Gran Couva 2001

2001 vintage of Valrhona’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

Amedei – Porcelana

A real connoisseurs chocolate with interesting developing flavours. Good job you don’t need much to appreciate this bar, given the price!
