The Révillon papillote
The legend tells that the papillote was born in 1790 in the shop of the pastry cook of Lyon Sieur Papillot. His apprentice, madly in love, offered to his beautiful, chocolates wrapped with sweet words.
Noticing the disappearance of his chocolates, Sieur Papillot suspected his assistant, spied on him and recognized him as the author of the crime.
Charmed by the idea, he took it into his own hands and replaced the declarations by quotations...

Pure hazelnuts, pure almonds or almonds/hazelnuts, the praline is at the heart of our know-how and you will find it in many recipes. We take care to make it in the traditional way. Once roasted, the dried fruits are combined with caramelized sugar during the cooking process, then they are ground as finely as possible until a very melting preparation is obtained.
The ganache is the emblem of the French chocolate know-how throughout the world. It is a hot mixture of dairy products and chocolate. Thanks to this unctuous mixture, all the intensity and aromatic subtlety of the chocolates are amplified.
We wear the colors of the papillote, the symbolic chocolate of Christmas, which is part of our history. Because what we love most is to offer you moments of happiness and pleasure shared with those who matter, thanks to their gourmet recipes and the messages they contain.
And all these know-how, we have been practising them for more than 120 years, which is why Révillon has been recognized as a Living Heritage Company, only that!
