Tasting Valrhona’s chocolate is a rare, intense, and intimate experience. Take your time, concentrate, try to distinguish the complexity of the chocolate, and appreciate the pleasure as it reaches a crescendo. You can see its shine, feel its texture, and hear its crack, but only when it’s finally in your mouth does the experience truly begin.
The Art of Tasting can be broken down into four separate stages, all of which are essential to experience the richness and complexity of Valrhona’s chocolate, with the goal of revealing its aromatic potential.
Sight: Firstly, look at the chocolate. Concentrate carefully on the polish, the shine, and especially the color. A chocolate's color can range from a milky beige to pure mahogany to a deep dark brown. It is an essential detail that reveals the variety of the cocoa beans used.
Smell: Next, smell the chocolate, breathe deeply, and fill your mind and body with its rich aromas.
Hearing: After, listen to the crack the chocolate makes as you snap a square between your fingers.
Taste: Start by biting a quarter of a chocolate square, keep it in your mouth, and let it melt on your tongue to taste the initial flavors, aromas, and consistency. Then, gently rub your chocolate-filled tongue against your palate. This causes the temperature of the chocolate to slowly increase, resulting in the final release of its flavors and aromas. Close your eyes and focus only on the development of the aromatic notes of the chocolate in your mouth. Read more about the art of tasting here
