Terroir in Chocolate
In wine-making, there is a concept called “terroir,” which refers to the combination of various environmental conditions in which the grapes are grown, such as soil composition, elevation, and climate, that gives wine a distinct flavor and personality. Chocolate-making is no different. L.A. Burdick Chocolates presents unique and outstanding terroirs of some of the most celebrated cocoa-growing regions around the world. We invite you to explore the delicious array of terroir expressed in our Single Source Dark Chocolate Bars and Single Source Dark Drinking Chocolates. Our chocolate made from Madagascan beans is bright and fruity with a hint of vanilla. Our Ecuadorian chocolate is robust and earthy with notes of black tea and Indian spices. Terroir is the taste of place. Each of our Single Source chocolates expresses the unique character of the place they come from; it has deep and complex flavors that taste of everything surrounding the cocoa tree.
