Product Information

Formerly known as “Superalpina”, Bitter Lactée is the Valrhona couverture which has helped more than any other to win milk chocolate the recognition it deserves. Like Extra Bitter or Caraque, Bitter Lactée has an illustrious history and has helped to make the brand and its products a success.

So that taste is always a source of inspiration, we have used a research-based co-creation approach to give each couverture a specific ambiance which will appeal to both your senses and your emotions.

With its cocoa-rich, milky flavor, Bitter Lactée is the milk couverture for anyone who loves dark chocolate.

SENSORY PROFILE

Bitter Lactée begins with distinctive notes of fresh milk and vanilla followed by echoes of sweet cocoa, which prolong the tasting experience like the bass notes on the piano concluding a piece of music.
