Since the creation of the Maison in 1995, Pierre Marcolini has always remained keen to
explore new ventures, reshuffle the cards and – always – think outside the box.
30 years of adventures in the world of chocolate have not blunted his creativity, or daring
taste for innovation.
Once the challenge had been accepted, the revolution soon followed: Pierre Marcolini has
redesigned his emblematic, best-selling “Malline Découverte” box, meaning ‘discovered’ in
English, which captures the essence of Pierre’s endeavours and will (as the box says) take
people on a discovery.
The journey begins with listening to what customers have to say. Next, after months of
research, travel, and searching for complementary ingredients, come the technical miracles
performed at Pierre’s Brussels workshop:
The revisited ‘Malline Decouverte 2.0’ will include 31 chocolate gems, in a wide range of
flavours and textures to dazzle every palate
The new box encompasses 7 signature collections that represent the values
at the heart of Maison Pierre Marcolini:

The Grands Crus
A new collection of Grands Crus from Pierre Marcolini showcases 5 exceptional Grand Cru
cocoas from Peru, Cuba, São Tomé, Madagascar and India, as well as a signature blend.
A pioneer of the bean-to-bar movement Pierre Marcolini has been spearheading for over
20 years through travels all over the world to find the best cocoa beans. Grand Cru varieties
are selected for their rarity, respect for cocoa-tree species and strong ethics for the planters
who grow them.
Just like grapes, cocoa beans have unique personalities and flavours related to the soil in which
they grow, their variety and cultivation.
The primary notes of each Grand Cru are sublimated by being reworked flavoured and infused
Gran Nativo Blanco beans from Peru release citrus notes, the rare and unique Cuba beans have
a smoky flavour, Madagascar’s ylang-ylang notes are fresh and floral, and beans from India
contain a trace of nutmeg.
