1-  Our traditionnal white dragees
We offer 3 ranges of quality almond dragees. The quality depends on the type of sugar and the thickness of the coating: what we look for in a dragee is a thin coating that will bring out the flavors of the almond, and make for the most exquisite taste.

Try our  Vendôme dragees for a good quality at the right price
Choose our Trianon dragees for a superior quality
Enjoy the exceptional quality of our Versailles dragees
