Rating: A-

Today we have another chocolate from Michel Cluizel's "Premier Cru de Hacienda" line of single-estate chocolates. The "Los Anconès" is dark brown (bordering on ebony) in color with a hint of red. Immediately present on the palate is a rich dark chocolate flavor. There is a nice bitter kick. There are roasted notes, and a nutty peanut flavor. The Los Ancones has a moderate acidity which highlights fruity notes of blackberries and sour cherries.

Chewing the Michel Cluizel Los Anconès brings out notes of hazelnuts, tobacco and cherries. The mouthfeel of this chocolate bar is smooth, thick and creamy. The finish has peanut butter and berry notes. The Los Ancones is another winner from the fantastic 1er Cru de Hacienda line from Michel Cluizel. It is well-balanced with a nice nuttiness and a great chocolate flavor.
