History / Know-how

Discover our full story

Throughout the harvest season, Lc truffes is committed to rigorous, ongoing selection. For each variety there is a market opening (prefectoral decree) in the various European producer countries (France, Italy, Spain), and we respect these dates.
Our relentless pursuit of excellence means that we have expertise in all truffles.

We buy on the various professional markets, including the world-famous Richerenches, from collectors, brokers and like-minded associates in France, Italy, Spain and Australia.

Truffles are bought in the ground and then washed.
They lose 10 to 15% of their weight. Once washed, they are meticulously sorted and canifed. This sorting establishes several categories: Entières Extra, Entières 1er choix morceaux, pelures, brisures.
Rare are the batches where only extras and 1er choix can be found.
Truffles can also be traced.
Truffles are dispatched quickly after harvesting to guarantee total quality. No truffles are stored from one week to the next.

I put this passion at the service of my customers, to whom I want to offer the very best in truffles.

Continuous, rigorous selection

A beautiful truffle has a pleasant fragrance, is perfectly ripe, firm without being hard, soft or too dry.
An irregular truffle is no less excellent than a well rounded one, and large truffles are no better than small ones.

Every year, every season, the beauty of the truffles in our hands is captured, and they parade before your eyes.
