BEN TRE (Silver Award 2019)
Packed at 80g/bar and 27g/bar. Black chocolate 70% cacao
Ben Tre, a coastal area in the Mekong Delta, south of Tien Giang, is home to Vietnam’s biggest concentration of cacao plantations, as wells coconuts and other commercially grown tropical fruits.It is not sure that because cacao is among coconut groves, creamy coconut aroma is one of prominent note that comes firstly. Beside, chocolate from Ben Tre beans have a complex aroma of mixed citrus, cherry pie and peach notes, with undertones shot through with a darkly bitter, hint coffee intensity recalling the lushness of this important agricultural region.There is a moderate but perfectly balanced astringency and bitterness. In both cases it is a soft bitterness and astringency.
