LATE-NIGHT WINE AND CHOCOLATE PAIRINGS
Pair dark chocolate with a bold red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah, for a rich and intense flavor experience.
Milk chocolate pairs well with a lighter red wine, like Pinot Noir, or a sweet white wine, such as Riesling or Moscato.
For a unique pairing, try pairing white chocolate with a sparkling wine, like Champagne or Prosecco, for a sweet and bubbly combination.
If you prefer a more bitter chocolate, like 85% cacao, pair it with a full-bodied red wine, like Malbec or Zinfandel, to balance out the bitterness.
Matching flavor intensity is key when matching wine with chocolate. Darker chocolate can handle bolder wines, while lighter chocolate should mix with milder wines.
Remember to sip the wine and let it coat your tongue before taking a bite of chocolate to fully appreciate the pairing.
