When you think of vanilla, you think of Madagascar. Bourbon vanilla is an appellation that includes several countries: Madagascar, Comoros, Mayotte, Mauritius, Reunion Island. Vanilla has been established in Madagascar since the beginning of the 20th century. It quickly gained international renown thanks to the quality of its maturing and its aroma. The industry and the great pastry chefs swear by this origin. Although the vanilla industry is going through a difficult period with high prices, consumers' love for vanilla remains intact
Today, Madagascar is the leading producer of vanilla with 80% of the world's vanilla harvest each year.
Its aromatic amplitude enchants us, it becomes for some an addiction
I prefer it in sweet recipes. For example, when I prepare a crème brûlée, a floating island or just a poached pear. These are quick and easy recipes to show you the quality of your Bourbon vanilla. You will be able to discover all its aromatic amplitude and all its cocoa and dried fruit notes in this type of preparation
I've always loved commerce, travel, men. When I was 18 years old, I used to go to the markets and flea markets to sell pains au chocolat and Bourbon vanilla from Madagascar to "make a coin". I was fascinated by the smell of vanilla bourbon. Every year, I bought some on the internet several times and sold it to customers on weekends.
I explained and praised the quality of Madagascar, its sensual nose, its cocoa notes. Without knowing it, I had fallen into the pot like Obelix, unlike the magic potion, it was in the world of vanilla.
When I went to Lille to do my Bac +2, I continued to sell vanilla at the Wazemmes market, at flea markets and in front of the Super U in Breteuil. The two franchisees had allowed me at the time to set up my small table in front of the entrance to their store.
I went to India for the first time that same year thanks to my savings. I discovered an extraordinary country, wonderful people and above all the passion of my life: spices and Vanilla
My first trip to Madagascar was in 2012. Landing in Antananarivo, the capital, and flying to Sambava a few hours later.
The first sensation is an omnipresent smell of vanilla as soon as you get off the plane.
The harvests had just been completed, and the pods were laid out on jute sacks in the exporters' yards, in front of a few shops along the roads.
I thought I was dreaming. A dream come true!
Meeting with my local contacts, women and men who make the magic of this spice all the more magical
Visit of the plantations, the producers, the collectors, setting up of the specifications, discovery of the vanilla country.
If I managed to get there it was thanks to my clients who trusted me. They were the ones who had pushed me to move forward, who had given me the chance to live my passion 200%.
Today, bourbon vanilla is still my first love.
I have made wonderful discoveries during my many trips to the plantations but the first love is the one that takes us to lands that were then unknown.
It then took a lot of perseverance to figure out how to improve the quality of my imports.
Changing partners, finding a team, a woman more precisely who helped me in my apprenticeship, my vanilla sensibility, my selections of the best wines of Madagascar.
Real partnership can only be built on a basis of mutual trust.
After more than 8 years of searching for the world's best vintages, by acquiring a discipline, a know-how, I am able to offer a vanilla from Madagascar that goes off the beaten track.
IS VANILLA BOURBON GOLD BETTER THAN THE OTHERS?
If I should tell you just one thing, it's that Vanilla is my Life. When I sell one of my picks, I'm selling a bit of myself.
I get samples all year round. I choose from the best lots, the one that "vibrates" me.
I do my utmost to ensure that the price of my selections follows the market price as closely as possible. The quality of my vanilla and spices is my signature. Vanilla beans, vanilla beans on the surface, a very greedy set, ideal to discover the Bourbon vanilla of Madagascar. A maturing period of several months for an impressive result in the pastries!
The smaller the size of the vanilla beans, the more beans you will get per kilo. The aromatic will be greedy and vanilla but less precise than a larger vanilla
*** Madagascar's Bourbon Gold Vanilla
The best of the harvest, a quality that reaches excellence between 28 and 37% humidity (more aromatic amplitude), offers cocoa notes on a buttery-creamy whole. A unique quality and a David Vanille signature.
Vanilla beans that make up a tiny percentage of the harvest. Always in search of exceptional pods, Gold refining, this quality is for lovers of rare and top-of-the-range products.
If you want to treat yourself, you will be under the spell!
To make the most of its full range of aromas, take care to split your pod along its entire length, remove the seeds and incorporate the whole into your recipe.

Comment from David Vanille the 15/01/2020
Bonjour André, Je viens de regarder à plusieurs reprises la photo de votre commande. Les gousses sont stabilisés à environ 32-33% d'humidité. L'amplitude aromatique est superbe. Notes marquées de cacao, fruits secs, vanillées. Les gousses sont plus proche de 16cm que de 14cm. Le taux d'humidité n'est pas un facteur de qualité. Au delà de 35%, je proposerai des vanilles non stables. Croyez moi, je suis un expert dans mon domaine. Passez une excellente semaine, Cordialement, David

Le point positif pour ces gousses de vanille est que c'est de la vraie vanille Bourbon de bonne qualité. Le point négatif est que le prix de ces gousses de vanille, est un peut trop élevé à mon avis, vu le calibre et la taille des dites gousses.
