Chocolat Bonnat is a craft chocolate maker located in France. Besides the fact that the bars are always amazing I also love that they are 3.50 ounces. I feel all giddy opening a bar of that size.
This time I tried the 75% Porcelana which comes from Venezuela. Porcelana is typically listed as a rarer cacao bean from the Criollo variety of beans with delicate flavor characteristics.

Color: Dark drown and gorgeous looking still given the fact that it went from France, to Canada (I bought this one at The Chocolate Project in Victoria, British Columbia), and then home with me to Port Townsend, WA.
Nose: honey, grape, hint of clove, and hot chocolate.
Texture: Smooth, luxurious texture with a full-bodied mouthfeel.
Tastes: Hot cocoa, warm milk, dark honey, and grape. This is one of those bars that really helps satisfy major chocolate cravings!
Finish: Long finish of cocoa powder.
I’ve added this bar to my nominee list for best Porcelana bar for the Dark Matters Chocolate Reviews 2017 chocolate awards. Look out to see all the winners January 2018.
