Nestled within the crumbly texture of these refined cookies lies the essence of the IGP Menton lemon, beaming with its own Protected Geographical Indication. This badge of honor declares the uniqueness of its terroir, a special microclimate graced with over 300 days of sun, nourishing the lemon trees nestled between the sea and mountains. The almonds, sumptuous and generous at 21%, lend a creamy counterpoint to the zestful exuberance of the lemon. Each bite reveals a moment of clarity - a convergence of tangy brightness and nutty depths. And within this confection lies not just taste but a story of heritage, a whisper of the citrus-imbued winds of the French Riviera and the age-old art of French biscuiterie.
Albert Ménès, true to their cornerstone of traditional French gastronomy, crafts these cookies using the renowned IGP Menton Lemons - a fruit so celebrated, it has its own festival in Menton, symbolizing the citrus mastery of the region.
