Academy of Chocolate 2006 – Gold in Best bean to bar category
Ingredients: Cocoa, cane sugar, cocoa butter, Bourbon vanilla pod.
According to Michel Cluizel :
“The island of Papua – New Guinea, off the coast of Australia, is an unusual origin for cocoa. A superb Maralumi plantation lies close to the East coast producing refined beans that greatly appealed to me.
The beans give this mellow chocolate slightly roasted and spicy flavours, fresh notes of green bananas and acidulates flavours of red currants prolonged by charming aromas of Havana tobacco leaves.””
