There are a countless companies offering Marc de Champagne chocolate truffles. Most of the mass-produced ones have a very solid shell and a very intense centre. With the Zotter Marc de Champagne chocolate bar you get a much softer, crisp dark chocolate shell and a great deal of the sweet, boozy, intense and rich centre that I'm sure you'll have problems restraining yourself from finishing in one go. Few of the Zotter chocolate bars have an alcohol content level as high as this. Five per cent of this bar is made with Marc de Champagne which you can definitely tell as you hold the bar to your nose. Even through the outer wrapper and the 'golden' foil you can sense the boozy aroma. In terms of added ingredients that flavour the bar there are few others, and certainly there are much fewer ingredients in this bar than most of the other Zotter ones. This helps the cocoa per cent of the bar being made from Fairtrade ingredients be high at 79% - which is essentially the 70% cocoa solids and the cocoa butter. Furthermore, only the salt isn't certified as organic, whilst the other ingredients are. This bar is perfect for a bit of unashamed self-indulgence, it's the sort of chocolate bar you buy yourself when you deserve it.
