However much it may surprise you, wine and chocolate are natural partners and form important part in the world of gastronomy.
The chocolate has very complex flavors but also has simple, common or similar shades, so their marriage should follow the same guidelines that we must consider the pairing wine with other foods.
We anticipate that the task is neither clear nor simple, much depends on the taste of each person, but the pairing can be achieved if we follow a few simple rules that lead to the results we are looking for; which is that of pairing chocolate with a good wine.
The first step is to understand the relationship between the two products:
Red wines will bring the flavors of red fruits and spices.
White wines accompany with white chocolate and citrus fruits.
Aged wines give a special touch of wood, vanilla, coffee, snuff, etc.
