Extra fresh black truffles
Fresh black truffles are available in season, from late November to late March.
SELECTION OF FRESH BLACK TRUFFLES
Our fresh truffles arrive in our preparation workshops in batches of land. Our experts are then responsible for sorting, washing, brushing and cutting each truffle , one by one by hand. This meticulous method makes it possible to select the best product for your plates.
During the selection, our experts are interested in the shape and size of the truffles , to offer you a product that can easily be transformed in the kitchen. However, another factor comes into play and this is by far the most important, the flavor of the truffle . Canifage (making a cut in the skin of a fresh truffle), allows our professionals to check the quality of the truffle. They check the color of the flesh which must be dark, with white veins.
FRESH BLACK TRUFFLES FROM PÉRIGORD
The mention “from Périgord” corresponds to the regulatory name of the truffle variety, Tuber melanosporum . It is not an appellation of origin. Black Périgord truffles ( Tuber melanosporum) can therefore be harvested in France, Spain, Italy, Australia or even Chile. We find this name on other products, such as Paris mushrooms or Brussels sprouts.
The Périgord black truffle is recognized for its subtle and intense flavors, for nearly two centuries we have made it a house specialty. Composed of more than fifty aromatic nuances, the black truffle is a complex gastronomic product. We attach great care to its preparation to guarantee you exceptional fresh truffles .
The woody notes of Tuber melanosporum are ideal to elevate and sublimate your culinary preparations. The black truffle has another advantage, it is edible raw but can also be cooked, which allows a use of which only your creativity will be the limit.

Your truffle should be firm and not mushy and give off a pleasant aroma. Its external appearance must remain intact.
What does truffle smell like?
The Périgord black truffle or tuber melanosporum smells of undergrowth, musk, earth and humus sublimated by a delicate aroma of roasted hazelnut.
What is the price of black truffle?
The price of black truffles varies greatly depending on the harvest year. It can also vary even within a season. You can find black truffles around 150€ for 100g and much more expensive the following week. With climate change and increasingly poor harvests, its price is likely to increase, as this product is scarce.
