An unevenly good line. The darker, the deeper, the better. Crisps verge on gimmick while the straight no-chaser, no-nonsense traditionals gleam experience.
Presentation   4.1 / 5
good-looking, affluent box set
Aromas   4.2 / 5
streaming creams
Textures/Melt   8.7 / 10
Shells: semi-thick
Centers: ganache magic
Flavor   43.2 / 50
very traditional cream but fully dimensional, clean flavor
Quality   24.6 / 30
Deluxe, stylish, & polite
Selections
Couverture: Callebaut
Decouverte – whipped cup of coffee & gianduja; all coffee / no ‘duja
Valerie – gianduja w/ rice crisp; Belgium effete
Rocher Noir– crunchy praline, classic proportional Belgian heritage; excellent though the Milk version much less successful
Dali – dark ganache; achingly good; finish of pure plain chocolate; wonder-piece
Amandine – fair & true
Cupidon – softly viscous caramel; holds well in the midpoint between butter & honey; a standout
Cerise Kirsh – oozy chocolate spoilage
Knossos – rum ganache; precision craft & balance
Charlotte - another coffee ganache, this one studded w/ a walnut top that furnishes more crunch to the Texture than the Flavor, the latter a full-force espresso-level café to annihilate all in its path; potent
Marguerite - an after-dinner vanilla-cream amenity; straightforward
Tendresse - thick interlocking-hearts enrobe an interior of orange-gianduia; mostly heavy-handed on the citrus extract than any 'tenderness'
Feuille - Dark-on-Milk nougat praliné; sweet, for sure & all the ingredients fully-expressed from the salted-nut to the bi-polar chocolate
