Chocolaterie Saunion

Top choice chocolate in Saint-Pierre, Saint-Paul & the Triangle d'Or

Follow local gourmets to this exquisite, oh-so-bourgeois chocolate shop, run by the same family since 1893. Fourth-generation chocolate-maker Thierry Lalet is at the helm today, crafting gold-foil-wrapped Galliens de Bordeaux (almond nougat, praline and hazelnut chocolate bonbon), Guinettes (kirsch-soaked cherries enrobed in dark chocolate) and chewy Niniches Bordelaises (honey, milk and chocolate caramels) to die for.
