This pack includes chocolate that pairs well with red wine. The selected bars are dark bars ranging from 70% up to 82% cocoa content. This pairing is particularly difficult to make perfect, but easy to get right. The best rule to follow is buy any red wine you love, and pair it with great dark chocolate.
Step 1: Smell the newly opened bar.
Step 2 or 3: Place a thumbnail sized piece on your tongue, let it fully melt, and wait for the finish.
Step 2 or 3: Drink some red wine and enjoy the full experience with just a hint of the chocolate in the background.
Step 4: Breathe deep and notice any lingering tastes and feelings.
Step 5: Repeat.
The key to this pairing is to wait long enough between the chocolate and the wine to allow for a full experience of each. You want both pieces of the pairing to be great on their own.
Of course these steps are difficult in a party setting and the pairing doesn’t have to be stuffy. Good chocolate and good wine will always shine through. Experiment and enjoy.
