Maison Truffes Henras also produces derived products which will excite experienced truffle lovers and neophytes alike: there are no artificial aromas, respect for the ”true” taste of the Tuber Melanosporum.
Subject to irregular harvests and a plurality of scents and tastes, the knowledge of the truffle has been the expertise of Maison Truffes Henras since 1820. This expertise in terms of selection was made necessary by the need to explore new truffle terroirs, to maintain a high level of quality despite the harvest challenges.
Maison Truffes Henras offers white truffles, summer truffles and Burgundy truffles, but its main expertise remains the "Périgord" black truffle. The intense and peculiar scent of the Melanosporum truffle varies according to its maturity and quality. The intensity of its aroma is proportional to the quality. Finely peppery, its subtle scent recalls musk, woodlands, earth and humus enhanced by a delicate aroma of roasted hazelnut.
