Grand Cru 75% Dark Chocolate 70g by Cuvee Chocolate
In 2014, Maître Patissier, Chocolatier and Wine Connoisseur Deniz Karaca and his wife Kylie founded Cuvee Chocolate from their kitchen base, right at the fringe of the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
A chocolate proud of its origins planted in the wild earth of Africa. It starts off by showing an intricate fruity/blossomy fragrance indicating the richness in tannins that gives it its defined cocoa flavour.
There is lots of cherry and red plum breaking through the slight bitterness of the cocoa, finished by a hint of acidity in the back palate which tends to linger around for a bit.
Perfect for the chocoholic preferring less sweetness and more cocoa.
