Valrhona 85% Grand Cru Abinao Bar 70g
« on: November 17, 2010, 02:57:45 pm »


At 85% cocoa solids, this is one of the darkest bars that Valrhona produce.  Made from African cacao, it's also one of the most delicious I've ever tasted.  There is a hint of red fruit and woodiness, but the flavour is dominated by dark, tobacco notes.  Even though it has such a high cocoa content, the chocolate is quite melt-in-the-mouth because of the amount of cocoa butter used.  It also leaves little trace of acidity.  This is very close to perfect chocolate heaven.

I love this bar and give it 9/10
