A Guided Tasting of Haut-Chocolat


At Vosges Haut-Chocolat, we harness the power of storytelling to open minds, spirits, and palates through chocolate, inspiring us all to interact with the world in a more loving way. We seek to create harmony, creativity, and inspiration by exploring the alchemic balance between the soul that seeks happiness and the spirit that wants to rule the world.

Here, each truffle is infused with a healing sound frequency to raise your vibe and tells a tale of exotic ingredients, travels, curiosities, and inspiration. These aspects are an integral part of our chocolate process and put the "art of tasting" at the forefront of our mission. To truly taste and experience each piece of haut-chocolat, we recommend following along with our guided tasting below.

A Guided Tasting of Chocolate

It is best to begin your tasting in a quiet, comfortable place, free from distractions. This can be your home or outdoors in nature if you choose. Once you have found your space, take a seat and select the chocolate that most appeals to you. Let the tasting begin. 

Close your eyes. Take three deep, ujjayi breaths. Listen to the space between thought and prepare your palate to experience chocolate.

Describe what you see. What is the shape, color, sheen and texture?

Run your finger against the chocolate, noticing its texture and releasing the aromatics.

Bring the chocolate to your nose. Close your eyes, cup your hand around the chocolate and inhale deeply.

Enjoy your truffle in two bites. In the first bite, you are just getting to know the truffle, and in the second, you delve deeper, searching out the aromas and nuances. You become immersed in the experience of the chocolate and the sensations. After you’ve eaten the truffle, take a breath and taste the air. The aroma should have a long, lingering finish that is layered with perfumed notes.
