Ladurée‘s new chocolate shop in Paris, Les Marquis de Ladurée, quietly opened its doors in December, in the midst of the holiday season.
Located just a few steps away from the upscale place Vendôme, the new shop is the company’s first store devoted entirely to chocolate. (Ladurée previously operated a small chocolate shop next door to its pâtisserie and tea room on rue Bonaparte, a space today filled by Ladurée Secrets & Beauté.)
Les Marquis de Ladurée, whose gorgeous décor combines 18th-century refinements and contemporary design, sells a full range of hand-crafted chocolates bonbons and truffles, as well as chocolate pastries and chocolate macarons.
Among the house specialities are “chocolat macarons” (macaron chocolates), which are macaron shells & ganache encased in chocolate.
Also on offer are scrumptious chocolate pastries such as Savarin Marquis, a chocolate baba cake soaked in cocoa syrup and Grand Marnier, and Eclair Marquis, a chocolate eclair featuring cocoa nibs and edible gold leaf.
Following Ladurée’s spectacular growth in recent years, the launch of a dedicated chocolate shop complements the company’s offering of macarons, luxury pastries and gift products.
