Michel Cluizel Chocolates – Lait Collection

Exalted Milk Chocolate

Michel Cluizel rein­vents the often-sweet milk choco­late with his curat­ed soy lecithin-free process to bring out the best of the cacao fruit and blend it togeth­er with absolute­ly mouth­wa­ter­ing notes and flavors.


Michel Cluizel milk choco­lates receive the same long, care­ful pro­cess­ing as the company’s dark choco­late vari­ants to main­tain that trade­mark smooth­ness in all fla­vors and inten­si­ty lev­els of the bars — all with a touch of caramel to the taste. 

  • The Grand Lait 45% Éclats Caramel Beurre Salé (Milk Salt­ed But­ter Caramel) bar bal­ances just the right lev­el of cocoa with salt­ed but­ter and brown caramel notes to tit­il­late the senses. 
  • The Plan­ta­tion Man­garo Lait 50% (Milk 50%) bar com­bines a deep caramel fla­vor with notes of gin­ger­bread, hon­ey, exot­ic fruit, and sultanas. 
  • The Plan­ta­tion Riachue­lo Lait 51% (Milk 51%) bar plays up cream and caramel laced with red fruit and cocoa for a spicy, fresh fin­ish that lingers long on the palate.


Milk choco­late is at once remark­ably diverse and tricky to pair with. The secret is in the bal­ance and qual­i­ty of ingre­di­ents. Michel Cluizel teas­es out the purest choco­late taste out of his bars, mak­ing each one a treat on its own or with any fresh accom­pa­ni­ment. Nuts, gin­ger, and cit­rus bal­ance out the milky taste and play well with the caramel notes. Try them with avo­ca­do ice cream or a young Asi­a­go cheese fresh off a cheese board. If you pre­fer to indulge with a lit­tle wine on the side, the Grand Lait 45% pairs well with a Valpo­li­cel­la, Banyul, or Pinot Noir — but if you’re savor­ing a whole selec­tion of milk choco­lates, the semi-sweet, light body of a Ries­ling or Mus­cat is a more all-encom­pass­ing match.


Michel Cluizel pro­duced his first Grand Lait bars long before high-cacao con­tent milk choco­late drew the palate away from the sug­ari­er vari­ants. At the time, his efforts were under­ap­pre­ci­at­ed, but that did not stop him. From the orig­i­nal run of Grand Lait Cacao Pur Ile de Java 55%, he and his com­pa­ny craft­ed less intense cocoa per­cent­age bars. Today, Michel Cluizel milk choco­lates are eye-open­ers to even the great­est of milk choco­late skeptics.
