Fundamentally sugar butter; tastes vain & anorexic. All the right lines there but gone missing - just tracers without dimension & color - Valrhona seemingly past its prime, banged-up, & uninterested. Sourced from the 400 acres of the venerable high-grower San Juan Estate (formerly owned by cacáo pioneer François Agostini), home to the oldest strains of Trinitario on the island that can be traced to F.J. Pound’s original ICS clones.
