The Bonnat family have been making chocolate in Voiron, France for over 130 years. It was current head Stephane Bonnat’s parents, Raymond and Nicole Bonnat who pioneered Bonnat’s first single origin bars in the 1980’s. Stephane has continued his parent’s tradition and the company now works with 35 different plantations worldwide to produce their bars.
In this typically smooth and creamy Bonnat, the fruity notes you would expect from a Madagascan bar, are mixed with fudge. Rather than a burst of fresh berries, we tasted caramelised, almost burnt raisins.
