Delices and Gourmandises advices
A great wine and chocolate pairing will be essentially determined by a well-balanced tannin of the two. Black chocolates which have a really high cocoa content (more than 75%) go well with red wines like the Maury or the Banylus. Smooth wines such as the Monbazillac also have a very enjoyable sweet and fruity taste. White and milky chocolates fit better with dry or fresh white wines.
