For our chef Philippe Colinet and his Colette Saint Tropez restaurant team, working with local artisans and producers is the obvious way to go. Our beautiful Provence is rich in the resources necessary to provide us with magnificent fruits and vegetables, cheeses, honey, ice creams, seafood, and more. And, thanks to the Maison Duplanteur, chocolate is also on this role of honour! Read on as we introduce you to these exceptional artisans.
From bean to boutique
The Maison Duplanteur is a newcomer in the world of chocolate, having been launched only in 2015, but has already made a big hit with connoisseurs and chocoholics throughout the region. Both a chocolate factory and an outlet, it controls the entire chain from the choice of cocoa beans to their transformation into chocolate. It even has its own cocoa plantation in Sierra Leone, where the production is supplemented by purchasing beans from cooperatives carefully selected for the quality of their produce as well as for their eco-responsible commitments and projects. Of course, all their chocolate has organic farming and quality artisan producer certification.
Flowers and chocolate
Don’t miss the opportunity to taste the delicious creations of the Maison Duplanteur, starting with their chocolate bars, which provide pure pleasure to gourmets. The brand’s dark chocolate is identified by origin, so there’s Sierra Leone, Peru, Ecuador, Madagascar… but also by cocoa content, ranging from 69 to 100%. You will also find milk and white chocolate bars. The flower chocolate is our favourite. Celebrating Grasse, where the Maison Duplanteur has established itself, and its reputation as the Perfume Capital of the World, they combine the generous flavours of cocoa with the subtle scents of centifolia rose and violet. A multitude of other delicious and fragrant delights await your discovery either directly at the chocolate factory or from the online shop.
Among the exceptional products of our region, Maison Duplanteur chocolate holds a prominent position. When you visit the Colette restaurant, take the time for a side-trip to Grasse to sample their irresistible creations.
