Wine and chocolate found in gift hampers 'can be consumed at the same time'
Published on 24/09/2010

Chocolate and wine go well together, one specialist has claimed.

Writing for Reuters, Curtis Marsh said beverages like Port and Sherry used to be the drink of choice when chomping on chocolate, but that trend is moving on.

He explained a deep red wine accompanied by high-quality chocolate can be a real treat, as he first experienced it at a dinner party with his pals.

"Similarly, at another chocolate addicted friend's place, the host opened a bottle of 2002 Zind-Humbrecht Ragen Clos Saint Urbain Pinot Gris from Alsace which matched beautifully with white chocolate," Mr Marsh stated.

The expert observed wine and chocolate pairings are growing in popularity in Asia, but the Italians have been combining the two - which often feature in luxury gift hampers - for a number of years.

Earlier this week, Frederic Drouhin from Joseph Drouhin revealed harvests at burgundy vineyards started earlier than usual because of a run of fine weather.
