Fabrice Gillotte creates fine chocolates at his factory in Burgundy. He has been honored with a number of awards for his work, including Meilleur Ouvrier de France in 1990.

We stopped by Mococha on rue Mouffetard where Marie-Hélène Gantois sells a selection of fine chocolates from French chocolate makers, including single-origin chocolates by Fabrice Gillote.

We purchased a 70g tablet each of Equateur, Sâo Thomé, and Papouasie – Nouvelle Guinée, and took them home to taste.

We found the Equateur (72% chocolate) to be quite bitter. Firm to the bite, smooth on the tongue, it did not melt rapidly nor reveal many flavors.

The Sâo Thomé (75% chocolate) had a firm, smooth texture and tasted earthy. It expressed animal notes and a “welcome to the farm” flavor. This chocolate is not for the timorous! We liked this one the best.

The Papouasie – Nouvelle Guinée (72% chocolate) was the mildest of the three, with notes of fruit and spice.

Bonne dégustation!
