Bar of the Week: Valrhona's Gran Couva

Our bar of the week is the Gran Couva from French chocolate maker Valrhona.  This 64% dark chocolate is made from Trinitario cacao grown on a single plantation in Trinidad.  Valrhona currently produces three such "chocolat de domaine" bars, each of which is labeled with a "vintage" year (our current stock is 2010).  By sampling one year's produce against another, you can gain new appreciation for annual variations in a specific cacao crop.  

Come by on Saturday, July 16th for a taste of Valrhona's Gran Couva.
