Easter represents a period of festivities. This is this occasion to enjoy a family meal and to enjoy chocolate. The agreement with the wine can be done in association with a very tannic red wine with dark chocolate, and in opposition with the flavors of a sweet white wine.

1) White and red wine

  • Red wine pair with chocolate:

Very rich in cocoa, dark chocolate is just like red wine, rich in tannins. This is why a combination of dark chocolate goes very well with a red wine. The tannins contained in the wine respond to the power of cocoa and emphasize the taste of dark chocolate.
