"The creaminess and intensity of our truffles are quite exceptional and provide the perfect finish to festive meals."
Our traditional truffles are, without doubt, the richest chocolates in our range. We make them using AOC butter and cream from neighbouring Bresse and 70% cacao dark chocolate. The truffles are then coated in dark chocolate and rolled in cacao. Our truffles are only available during the end-of-year holiday season (from the beginning of December to the beginning of January).
This category includes our clients' favourite chocolates available in boxes to treat yourself or someone else.View all Great Classics

A Word from our Chocolate Master
The chocolate truffle was invented by Louis Dufour, a pâtissier from Chambéry, in December 1895. Lacking enough chocolate to fill the orders his clients had placed with him and refusing to go back on his word, the chocolatier came up with the brilliant idea of mixing fresh cream with cacao powder. Then, to make the chocolates more presentable, he coated them in dark chocolate and rolled them in cacao.
