I just love Michel Cluizel chocolate – especially their single origin chocolate. Its divine. And if you you haven’t read the review of the Michel Cluizel 1ers Crus De Plantation Dark Chocolate Ganaches then I implore you to, you’ll see the fantastic array of fine chocolate that they have available.
Anyway, back to this 72% Dark Chocolate bar. The cocoa in this bar is a blend of fine cocoa strains and hence has a wide spectrum of flavour tones and does have anyone note be overly prominent. There is is a slight fruity flavour, but is more mild and balanced than the Pralus Trinidad 75% Dark Chocolate which is exceptionally unique and is also slightly less character than the Pralus Bresil. However, it has a lovely aromatic wooden flavour that comes out as you have a few squares. This Michel Cluizel 72% Dark Chocolate is a bar that grows on you.
I wouldn’t put it as a dark chocolate bar to consciously consume. It’s more of a very fine back drop chocolate that will satisfy your inner luxury dark chocolate needs without punching your mind out of what you’re actually doing – such as watching a movie.
The packaging, I’m afraid doesn’t look as beautiful as the Pralus chocolate, and I suppose its subliminal thing that on my last online shopping trip to Chocolate Trading Company, I bought five bars of Pralus chocolate, and only 1 of Michel Cluizel. I’ll remedy that on the next trip!
I’ll definitely keep what’s left of this chocolate to enjoy. It was very nice, but not as good, or as characteristic as many single origin dark chocolate bars.
Taste: 85% – I nice balanced dark chocolate bar, but missing the uniqueness of single origin
Texture: 85% – a very nice crispy texture, and a very pleasant melt
Appearance: 70% – the packaging has a lot to be desired, but the bar does look wonderfully dark and has their logo on each square
Nutritional Information: 50% – there’s not a lot there
Price: 75% for the full price. 90% at the sale price
Overall: 73% – a very pleasant dark chocolate bar indeed.
