Wine suggestions for chocolates tasting

geg5150 | Aug 1, 2007 03:23 PM

Hi y'all,

I recently indulged in a good assortment of Vosges
chocolates for tasting with wine.

Here's what I have:

Mo's Bacon Bar (Applewood smoked bacon, alder wood smoked salt, 41% cacao deep milk chocolate) to be paired with a 2004 Ebano Ribera del Duero Temperanillo

Here's what I need pairings for:

Barcelona Bar -- hickory smoked almonds, grey sea salt, 41% deep milk chocolate
Naga Bar -- sweet Indian curry powder, coconut flakes, 41% deep milk chocolate
Red Fire Bar -- Mexican ancho & chipotle chiles, Ceylon cinnamon, 55% deep chocolate
Black Pearl Bar -- wasabi, ginger, black sesame seeds, 55% dark chocolate
Creole Bar -- espresso, cocoa nibs, New Orleans style chicory, 70% Sao Thome bittersweet chocolate

Thanks in advance for the recommendations and I'll be sure to report back.

(I tasted the bacon bar already, and wow! it's tasty and bacony! Can't wait to taste it with the wine.)

Oh, and let's keep the bottles under $25 each and if there's any bottles that you think would match more than one chocolate, even better!
