Welcome to Day #9 of Chocolate and Holiday Spirits Theme Week.
Today's "Champagne Papi" Moet Champagne Truffles were from Exquisito Chocolates (Little Havana, Miami, FL).
Each truffle's single origin (Ecuador) 73% dark chocolate (hand-painted) shell encased a rich chocolate, champagne-infused ganache (filling). Ivory-colored, these attractive chocolates (with tiny bubble sized speckles) had the appearance of exotic bird eggs.
Aroma and flavor notes for this elegant confection included rich dark chocolate, light olive, sparkling white wine/champagne (with light fruit and floral notes). The champagne added pleasant flavor depth. (The very subtle alcohol (champagne) flavor was detectable toward the end.)
