Across the board, merely magnificient, & one & the same as its signature piece: Bacchus – intoxicating... euphoric... influential.

(For an entirely different review of its NYC salon click here)
Presentation   4.6 / 5
exterior elements: wood-paneled shops could be a corporate boardroom; packaging decidedly masculine; the pieces themselves equally macho – unassuming, even austere; unmistakable message: packed & potent
Aromas   5 / 5
chocolate first, foremost, & finally
Textures/Melt   9.6 / 10
Shells: thin & thinner (some as diaphanous as heroin-chic runway models)
Centers: collapse all around to long sinking finishes
Flavor   47.2 / 50
subtle, teasing, & elusive yet clear; cocoa wends around, yields & then snakes back at the tail w/out interference though fully in frame
Quality   29.3 / 30
Definitional ‘High Classical Style’; acute balance, dexterity, & insight... all a reflection of the éminence grise behind LMDC - Robert Linxe.
Selections
Couverture: Valrhona
