DESCRIPTION:

Located in the Sambirano Valley, near Ambanja, in the North-West of Madagascar, Bertil Åkesson’s estate spreads over about 2000 ha and is divided into smaller plantations like this Ambolikapiky. Since 1920, these farms produce world-famous aromatic cocoa and spices (like this pink pepper) used by most of the top chefs and chocolate makers around the world. In this subtle chocolate, the fruity-sweet tartness of cocoa, its pleasant flavor notes that evoke citrus and red berries are enriched by the floral notes of our pink pepper.

Ingredients: organic cocoa (min.75%), organic cane sugar, pure organic cocoa butter, organic pink pepper (2%). May contain traces of nuts, almonds, soya, milk, gluten and wheat.

Akesson's

Akesson's founded by Bertil Akesson is largely responsible for some of the super fine cacao we see coming from Madagascar. Bertil manages several estates in the Sambirano Valley, and also has a few plantations in Indonesia and Brazil. Bertil is one of the pioneers of the bean to bar chocolate movement, and produces a line of single origin and inclusion bars using the spices that also grow on his plantations. Akesson's focuses on high quality cocoa while maintaining sustainable practices. Not only has Akesson's won many awards, other chocolate makers have also won awards for their bars with Akesson's cacao.

Wonderful

Peppercorn isn't a common pairing with chocolate but I love it and have tried all the combos out there. This one is my second favorite after the Akessons with Voatsiperifery. Madagascar chocolate naturally has hints of citrus and cherry to it, best appreciated if you let it melt in your mouth. It lends itself well to combining with pink peppercorn, which has similar qualities, making for a complex, unique and harmonious pairing.

Delightfully smooth. Perfect inclusion of the peppercorns to give the overall chocolate that oomph but it doesn't overwhelm the fruity notes of the cocoa itself. I rarely feel that the description of the product matches in actuality but this one was summed up perfectly with "subtle chocolate" and "fruity-sweet tartness of cocoa".

Akesson's Madagascar Trinitario & Pink Pepper 75%

I expected more fruitiness and tartness. The flavor profile is driven by the very rare pepper aroma softened by the mild yet warm chocolate background. The red berries notes are like ghosts: something you can feel around you but you cannot see. Mysterious and immersive but very delicate. I believe it represents a perfect choice for pairing with wine and cheese.

Interesting, but Pink peppercorns overwhelm

I have had pink peppercorn chocolate before where the chocolate and peppercorn flavors were perfectly balanced, but for me, this bar was overshadowed by the strong peppercorn. I was hoping to taste more of the fruity notes of Madagascar chocolate, but sadly, it was lost under the weighty flavor of peppercorn. That being said, this bar does have a nice mouth feel and melts smoothly. I was just left disappointed by the chocolate being a far second fiddle to the pink peppercorn.
