Truly the food and drink of the gods. Intense, complex, indulgent—these two were destined to be together, right?
But, in practice, just like all legendary couples, the perfect pairing of wine and dark chocolate just might be more chemistry than kismet. Or, in this case, more palate than predestination. The general rule of thumb is to match intensity and sweetness, or, when in doubt, choose a wine that’s a bit more sweet. So, to help guide your search for the ultimate in tasteful, complimentary combinations, we humbly submit our suggestions below. Enjoy!
The wooden-cask aged Tawny Port, with its powerful notes of sweet, sweet fruit, provides the perfect balance to this organic dark chocolate topped with cacao nibs.
The concentrated fruit notes of the juicy Zinfandel offers that just-right, tasteful pop of sweetness to the 72% cacao of NibMor Original, revealing the hidden flavors of both.
The tart cherry sprinkles in the NibMor dark chocolate meet the full-bodied, rich, chocolatey, ripe red cherry notes of Amarone, a highly regarded wine of Northern Italy produced from grapes left to dry after harvest.
Wines with strong fruit notes are always a good match with fruit-accented dark chocolate. No surprise, then, that the blueberry sprinkles in the NibMor dark chocolate beautifully compliment the unmistakably fruit-forward, berry-like notes of a good U.S. Grenache.
The briny sea salt crunch, the rich, smoothness of the NibMor dark chocolate, and the earthy, smokiness of the Pinot Noir all come together for a delightfully sumptuous taste experience.
