It was in 1960 that Bernard Dufoux set up his shop and his laboratory in La Clayette, a peaceful town in southern Burgundy. Based in an old building where the poet Lamartine stayed, the pastryman trained at Bernachon in Lyon, devotes himself entirely to his passion for chocolate. Its inventiveness and the excellence of its raw materials give rise to chocolates with subtle tastes, including ganaches with spices or plants, designed for an aperitif. His audacious creations combine the craft tradition with his immoderate taste for innovation. Some chocolates baptized Vadouvan, Secret Tibetan or Conquistador, invite to the voyages and the discovery of the distant cultures. Others like the Pavé Charolais or Lamartine, pay tribute to the riches of the Burgundy terroir. The house exclusively uses cocoa grown in Latin America (Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador) and the Caribbean. Its preference is for Criollo beans, a rare species that accounts for 5% of the global harvest. The beans give chocolates not very bitter and very aromatic, qualities dear to Bernard DUFOUX always concerned about the chain of its raw materials. Pure chocolate is naturally rich in vitamins and minerals (potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium, iron) qualities that the chocolatier strives to enhance.
