Manjari was such a hit that in 2002 we decided to make our first single origin milk chocolate: Tanariva, Single Origin Madagascar. Since 2016, we have been shareholders in our long-standing partner Domaine Millot, which has enabled us to share common ambitions and build a long-term development plan. Valrhona came up with a name with a distinctive Madagascan sound, as “Tanariva” is short for “Antananarivo”, the country’s capital.
Cacao trees have been cultivated in this utterly unique terroir for decades in the north of Madagascar, swept by the trade winds that bring all the moisture they need to develop. It was in the district of Ambanja, on either bank of the Sambirano River, that the first cacao trees were introduced to Madagascar in about 1900 and it is there that Tanariva is now grown. Looking after the environment is a key priority on the plantation. Water is carefully preserved, and the soil is nourished with natural fertilizers. Zebus take care of work usually done with tractors.
One of Tanariva’s special qualities is its very light color (which is mainly courtesy of its Madagascan origins) and the high dairy content that makes it extraindulgent. The combination of intense vanilla and hot milk produces beautiful toffee notes.
