Wine and chocolate go hand and hand and Clos du Bois plus BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate prove it better than any other. I recently received samples of both and it’s been really hard to share with the kids (the chocolate portion that is). They got a taste of BROOKSIDE chocolate one morning at church and now they want to eat mine. Wine and chocolate is like my night time treat after they go to bed. BROOKSIDE Chocolate is rich, dark chocolate with sweetened soft centers made with exotic fruit flavors. It’s chocolate like you’ve never experienced before. It’s so good. The combination of the chocolate and fruit flavor is amazing. Then when you pair it with wine, oh my yums!
Clos du Bois began with a vision of blending fine French winemaking techniques with the best Sonoma grapes to craft a range of balanced, approachable wines. Year after year, their wines have been appreciated by both wine critics and wine lovers alike. We were given a few paring recommendations that I would love to share with you.
o Clos du Bois Pinot Noir and BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Flavor (hero pairing)
o Clos du Bois Rouge and BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters Berry Medley Flavors
o Clos du Bois Merlot and BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate Acai & Blueberry Flavors
o Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon and BROOKSIDE dark Chocolate Goji & Raspberry Flavors
Each piece of chocolate has a fruit flavored center.
The wine is pretty good. The Merlot is even better with every bite of chocolate which is why it’s such a great pairing. Now the other flavor combination I tried was the Clos du Bois Pinot Noir and BROOKSIDE Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Flavor. I enjoyed it so quickly that I didn’t get a picture of it. I recommend checking out their Brookside recipes and wine pairings for even more amazing flavor combinations.
