Chilean Périgord Winter Truffle

from 65.00

The Chilean Périgord Winter Truffle, is identical in species to the Périgord Winter Truffle from France, a more savory counterpart to the floral Italian White. This truffle's aura is rich, deep, and earthy, with a touch of wine, sugar and spice that especially comes to life when heated.

Due to Chile being in the Southern Hemisphere, this winter truffle truffle is now available between June and August.

Famously sniffed after by pigs, today most Périgords are searched for with the aid of trained dogs, who have come to be preferred. The real reason is that pigs are so infatuated by the earthy aroma of black truffles that there are stories of truffle hunters who have lost fingers while attempting to rescue the fungus from their ravenous snouts. 

Available in increments of ounces and pounds.
