There are just some pairings that were meant to be. Think about it, Salt & Pepper, Peanut butter and Jelly, cheese and crackers, and of course, wine and chocolate. But what about Brookside Chocolate and Clos du Bois wine?
As far as chocolates go, I tend to be a dark chocolate kinda girl, and will choose that just about anytime I want chocolate. I don’t know as much about wines, although I enjoy pairing, I didn’t know what went with what.
I received a basket of Brookside Dark Chocolates and Clos du Bois wine to see what pairings go well together. I was actually pretty excited to see how the chocolates and wine paired together.Brookside chocolates have a very rich, dark chocolate outside, with a delicious exotic fruit flavored center. I was sent Acai & Blueberry and Pomegranate.
Clos du Bois Wine
Besides the chocolates, I was also sent a bottle of Clos du Bois wine. A merlot. The tasting card told me this bottle of wine was paired best with Acai & Blueberry Brookside chocolates.
A few nights after receiving my basket of goodies, we hosted a dinner with another couple and I couldn’t wait to break out the wine and chocolate.The Clos du Bois wines are a combination of elegant French wine making techniques mixed with the best California grapes available. This makes a balanced wine meant to be enjoyed while laughing and sharing a delicious meal with friends and family. I know little about wines, but what I do know, is how incredible this wine and chocolate combination is.
The other couple was so impressed with the wine and chocolate combination, I received a text a few days later when she was lucky enough to discover both on a shopping adventure.
Since I am not as good at pairing wines, this experience was amazing. You can see more amazing pairings plus get some GREAT recipes on the Brookside website. After my intial experience, I had to head to the store to pick up a bottle of Clos du Bois Pinot Noir, so I could pair it with the Brookside Pomegranate. I cannot even tell you what a delectable combination that is, you just need to try it!
