The Charlemagne gift box concept is something I have been thinking about since I was very young. The sheer look on someone’s face when they receive a nice gift is priceless. I have lived in Europe and Japan and my gift box is a combination of European and Japanese gifting practices. The box contains chocolate truffles made here in Los Angeles by Yvan Valentin. Yvan hails from Roanne in France and trained at the iconic restaurant Maison Troisgros, notable for its three Michelin stars. He makes very good chocolates. The wines are all imported by me, chosen to pair nicely with the four different flavors of truffles prepared not more than 48 hours before sending. The true value of the box reveals itself when one bites into the truffles and then again upon opening the wine surrounded by friends and family, this is truly a special moment. The prices currently range from $75-$300. A la Carte, boxes are also an option. When you click on the option drop down menu, you will notice the price change with each choice: silver, gold, platinum etc. Pricing does not include shipping and sales tax.
Dark Truffles: "Old tradition" crunchy bittersweet chocolate filled with a dark melting ganache. A classic simply exquisite.
Praline Truffles: Wonderful combination of creamy ganache and caramelized toasted hazelnut paste wrapped in milk chocolate.
Ivory Cointreau Truffles: Delicious blend of chocolate, orange peel and Cointreau in a velvety smooth chocolate icing. A favorite for white chocolate lovers.
Cappuccino Truffles: Perfect blending of chocolate and cappuccino cream, coated with bittersweet chocolate and light cocoa.
