Richart Design et Chocolat founder Michel Richart explains that, "wine and chocolate pairings based on the harmony of aromas can be quite interesting and satisfying. There are two options: tone on tone- a pairing based on the similarities between the wine and the chocolate; and adversarial- a pairing based on two different, yet harmonious characteristics which bring out the best of both products." In addition, they taste-really good.
Richart suggests that each of their beautiful designed chocolate tidbits, made of finest Venezuelan cocoa, be paired with the appropriate Bordeaux." "While sweet white wines and chocolate is a classic match, other pairings are daring and delicious. I especially enjoy savoring the last sips on wine from my dinner with a luscious chocolate," says Linda Lawry, Director of the International Wine Center in New York.
Often thought of as guilty pleasures, chocolate and wine are a match made in Heaven for those daring enough to indulge," proclaims Richart. Any takers?
