Maxine and Elfi never miss a shot of chocolate! Another amazing dark chocolate bar.
The color is wood-like brown. Elegant and minimal mold. Sharp snap. The scents are very feminine and charming: figs and roses bouquet. The palate is delicate and harmonious: ripe figs and pink roses notes enriched by dates undertones. The finish is very clean. Light sweet floral chocolate aftertaste. Mouthwatering. No bitterness or astringency. Just elegant deliciousness.
This bar reminds me of some macarons I tried in Venice:
Chocolate macarons with dried figs and rose buttercream filling.
I have the feeling champagne is a good paring choice!
