Wine and chocolate fight for the same palate space so pairing wine with chocolate can be tricky but not impossible. Wine and chocolate both have complex flavors, textures, and subtle changes in each new bar or bottle. The process of making wine and chocolate is very similar because both the cocoa bean and the wine are fermented with the very same type of yeast. When pairing wine with chocolate it is important to make sure that the chocolate is not sweeter than the wine that it is being served with, or the wine will taste bitter. Wine and chocolate can be paired based on their color. The darker the chocolate is, the darker the wine should be. Pairing wine with chocolate is similar to wine tasting, work from light to dark and continue to experiment until the ideal combination is found. Start with more subtle white chocolate, light milk chocolate, move to a medium intensity chocolate, and end with a dark or bittersweet chocolate. Pairing wine with chocolate is not a straightforward process and it can take several tastings to find the perfect match.
White chocolate isn't chocolate at all because it does not contain any cocoa. White chocolate tends to be more buttery and mellow allowing it to be paired with a number of light wines and even some dark wines, called contrast pairing. Wines that pair well with white chocolate include Sherry, Muscat, fruity Chardonnay, Moscato, and Zinfandel. Milk chocolate can contain a high level of sugar which can cancel out any fruitiness in dry red wines, leaving them bitter. Lighter-bodied wines pair like Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Muscat, and dessert wines pair best with milk chocolate. Dark chocolate has 50 - 70% cocoa. Dark chocolate needs to be paired with a wine that has a roasted, slightly robust flavor like Cabernet Sauvignon or Zinfandel, and even slightly lighter wines like Merlot and Pinot Noir. Bittersweet chocolate has 70 ? 100% cocoa and pairs with wines like Shiraz, Orange Muscat, Port, and Zinfandel. Caramel chocolate is sweet, salty, and bitter and pairs best with Moscato and Champagne.
