Spanish Black Chocolate

This chocolate bar, made by the Spanish chocolatier La Artesana, is labelled extra fine black chocolate, and contains a minimum of 70% cacao content. The cacao itself comes from the Coast of Marfil, or Ivory Coast, in Africa. I have tried chocolate from a number of European countries, mostly from Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and Germany, but never one from Spain. The list of ingredients looks good, only sugar, cocoa paste, cocoa butter, lecithin and vanilla. How does it taste? Very fruity, like dark chocolate should, the more cocoa content, the fruitier it should taste. It melts fairly well in the mouth, too. A good start to my Spanish chocolate experience.
