Happy New Year's Eve to you all; and welcome to Day #11 of Chocolate and Spirits Theme Week.
Today's Champagne Truffles were from Vosges IP, LLC (Chicago, IL).
The aroma notes for these attractively packaged, and gold leaf adorned, truffles included: sweet dark chocolate (dark ganache, dark chocolate mousse), with very faint traces of warm spice--and even fainter, fleeting sourdough bread and chocolate cookie notes.
A firmer, smooth dark chocolate shell with filled with a velvety, soft dark chocolate ganache (filling).
The taste was very chocolate-centered with rich, smooth and chocolatey (brownie) notes, and very faint warm spice and vanilla.
