The note is a mix of chesnut and burnt amber dark brown. It smells like spring woods and fresh earth. The texture is thicker like dark molasses and the taste more genuine with distinctive malty flavour.
Buckwheat is a short season crop and is not related to wheat nor grass. But this rarely cultivated plant is back in the Pyrenees thanks to local farmers carrying over traditions through a great quality of production.
For a long while it has a been a trademark for French Brittany, but the buckwheat honey almost disappeared because of the rapid expansion of agricultural mass production and specialization. The plant was domesticated 8000years ago in Tibet and in the Yunnan so it finds a common ground to grow here, in the french Pyrenees. The taste reflects this complexity and we share the luck to produce the finest honey and gastronomic heritage from Béarn.
