Pairing wine with chocolate can be an appealing idea, but it doesn’t always work. You might remember the last time you had wine with chocolate; it probably wasn’t very successful. Wine and chocolate both have intense fruity notes, which is what makes these pairings so tempting.
Some wines and chocolates can be a good pairing for this reason, but some people find the pairing confusing because they do not bring out as many differences as they might. If this is the case, you should pair wine & chocolate with styles that play up those differences.
