Chocolate and Wine

i searched the website and got some different choices as far as chocolate pairings, with various types of wines... but i was wondering if anyone had anything specific and personal that they always enjoyed when they do wine/food/chocolate pairings. (for an example, i had a cupcake chardonnay from the World Market, and served it with Ahi Tuna Crostini, and its become a favorite of mine)

i was also hoping to try to find some pairings for exotic chocolates, also. such as these:

i'm not even sure if this should be in this forum. if not let me know, and i'll move it!

so thanks for your input if you have any!

  1. The Vosges web site has suggested wine pairings for their bars:

    Also see this thread on the Wine board about an all-chocolate dinner:

    Me, I like Zinfandel or a big, soft cab/merlot blend with dark chocolate truffles.


    1. braquetto di aqui (spelling?). good pairing for a desert. i also like the zin idea!!!

      1. Port. A good, rich, dark chocolate, a little fruit (fresh and/or dried, depending on the season), a few nuts, and a glass of port is an old stand-by for dessert when I go home to visit Mom and Dad.

        1. I was given a bottle of Rosa Regal and advised to drink it with chocolate. Family had it recommended and used in a dinner pairing in a restaurant a while back, and stated that while they were initially skeptical, it was fantastic. Haven't tried it yet though !

          1. I like pinot noir with not-to-dark dark chocolate.
