Michel Cluizel Chocolates – Noir Collection
Smooth and Intense
Michel Cluizel’s dark chocolates take the smoothness of these cacao bars to a whole new level. Free from soy lecithin, these chocolates have a purer, more assertively intense taste.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Each bar in this curated collection blends the smoothness of dark chocolate with Michel Cluizel’s choice flavor-enhancing notes.
The Noir Café 60% (Dark Coffee) bar is infused with the subtle tobacco and coffee hints of a fine Brazilian Arabica.
The Noir 63% Écorces d’Orange (Dark Orange Peels) bar contains carefully chosen orange peels that give it a distinct aroma and tangy citrus notes.
The Noir de Cacao 72% bar sits smoothly in the mouth with a touch of bitterness to its finish, and emits a woodsy, almost licorice-like scent.
The Grand Noir 85% bar combines the intense flavor of pure dark chocolate with hints of roasted chestnut and the tang of roasted coffee.
Finally, the Noir Infini 99% bar contains cocoa’s deepest, densest notes in their purest form to satisfy the most dedicated chocolate connoisseurs.
PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS
Pair your decadent dark bar with the sweet-tartness of berries or citric fruits for dessert or shave a little extra richness into dishes laced with paprika, peppers, cardamom, or saffron. Enjoy the smooth, decadent taste with sips of fortified wines like port, stout beers, or a sweet Sauterne. Red wine enthusiasts will enjoy the higher cacao percentages with a Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, while the lighter end of the dark chocolate spectrum goes well with Zinfandels or Syrahs.
FRENCH CHOCOLATE, EXACTLY RIGHT
All chocolate houses have distinct flavors, whether it be fruitiness or absolute cocoa intensity. Michel Cluizel aims for the exact center, with the intense flavor of cocoa balanced by flavors not usually found in chocolate bars. To ensure his products’ signature smoothness without turning to soy lecithin, he maintains an extended production process that brings his bars to the very height of gourmet chocolate.
