Nicolas Cloiseau, Master Chef of La Maison du Chocolat, presents a sublime new take on the Christmas tree for the 2016 Holiday Collection.
With his discerning eye for detail and proportion, Cloiseau invites us into his chocolate world where straight, sleek, geometric lines and volumes play on flowing shapes, colours and flavors. Nicolas Cloiseau delivers a statuesque Christmas tree, animated by juxtapositions.
Pushing chocolate to its vertical limits, Cloiseau has crafted a stylized ‘millefeuille’ tree made from twenty-five adjoined slender chocolate branches. One side is an elegant, geometric structure; the other reveals sinuous twists and turns that interplay with light.
The chocolate covertures receive different finishes, from glossed satin to a dusting of cocoa powder, or coating in fine gold leaf. His poetic artistry gives finesse to chocolate; he accentuates volumes, showcases the nuances of cacao crus, and sculpts a fine latticework of 1,036 individual perforations onto the branches. Taste this sublime interpretation of chocolate for the holidays: subtle, yet extraordinary.
La Maison du Chocolat carefully constructs its fine chocolate – including its renowned ganache – to unveil a balance of unique flavours from the first to the last bite.
Today, under the guidance of Nicolas Cloiseau, La Maison du Chocolat sets itself apart by passionately pursuing its quest for excellence. La Maison du Chocolat invites you to indulge in moments of pleasure and allow the exceptional chocolate to take you on a journey of the senses.
