In our continuing fall series, we want to show you how easy it is to pair your favourite wines and chocolate! This month we're featuring milk chocolate!
Match similar intensities
When in doubt, pair chocolates and wines that have a similar style and weight. Less intensely-flavoured chocolates go well with lighter-bodied wines, while chocolates with more intense flavours can stand up to a fuller-bodied wine.
Taste from light to dark
Just as you would with any other tasting, it's best to start with light chocolates and wines, increasing the intensity as you go along. Start with white chocolates and light wines and save the richest, dark chocolates and wines for last.
Need some inspiration? Here are a few of our favourite wine and chocolate pairings:
pairs well with Pinot Noir, Merlot, Gewurtztraminer. Milk chocolate is usually sweeter and creamier with flavours of brown sugar, vanilla, and cream. It requires a wine that is light to medium in body, with a ripe fruit character.
