When I think of chocolate, I don’t immediately think of pairing wine with it. What can I say, cheese is my dessert. To me, wine and chocolate has never been one of those obviously delicious combinations like basil and tomatoes or peanut butter and jam. I rarely find myself sipping wine after dinner with thoughts of having chocolate as a sweet conclusion to the richer meal I just consumed (chocolate lovers take it easy on me!). Well after a series of wine and chocolate truffle tastings I’ve been converted. As is it turns out, the trick to a truly delicious pairing of chocolate and wine is to know precisely which wine goes with which chocolate (because that’s obviously not what I’ve experimented with in the past!).
To help guide you through the sweet maze of chocolate and wine, I asked Lucie Trepanier, Groovy Grapes Sommelier, to gather some tried and true wine and chocolate truffle pairings and host a series of events to test them out. Click here to get the transcipt of my interview with her (PDF, Right click to download) or for more specific information, I’ve listed each of her wine and chocolate truffle pairings below!
