La Pichotte, our chocolate speciality

A major speciality of the establishment, La Pichotte is shaped in the form of a "half-founding / half-cracking" bûchette. This chocolate candy with a subtle and refined taste is composed of high quality raw materials: pure cocoa, almond paste made by our care, a zest of fine alcohol and... some other ingredients that give it that inimitable taste. It is a fresh chocolate that contains neither preservatives nor additives. We adjust its manufacture to the demand in order to guarantee an optimal gustatory quality.

In 1948, when Antoine Brun imagined the recipe for this chocolate candy, he named it La Pichotte, in homage to the "Pichotiers" which is the other name given to the inhabitants of La Rochefoucauld, commonly known as Rupificaldiens. This artisanal chocolate creation was a great success and became a true specialty.

Today, Jean-Luc Drochon continues this tradition. La Pichotte is made in the laboratory of La Rochefoucauld respecting the unique know-how acquired over decades.
