This "Marriage de Grands Crus" from a small plantation along the Caribbean Sea has an exceptionally long nose and the soft aromas of nuts on the palate. CARAÏBE 66% is a perfect balance of smooth chocolate and roasted dried fruit notes with a slight oaky finish. Its opulent and soft melody unveils subtle almond and roasted coffee flavors.

Valrhona Dark CARAÏBE 66% Stick
Here’s a chocolate that pairs with both warm and cooler climate Cabernet Sauvignon blends (California and Bordeaux). CARAÏBE is all about roasted nuttiness, not fruit. A light earthy Bordeaux brings out this earthiness in the chocolate making them a great match. A mountain grown (Howell, St. Helena) Californian Cabernet Sauvignon would also make for a fine pairing with its more structure driven style of cassis and baking spices.
A very subtle chocolate in aroma and flavor, the mild earthiness and moderate texture will pair with beers that have these slight nuances themselves. Oktoberfest/Marzen beers, made in the spring for fall consumption, will pair with the earthy characteristics without overpowering this more refined chocolate. For a simple complement that may even uncover some hidden flavors of the chocolate, pair this with an English Bitter that, despite what may be implied by the name, is lightly creamy with a gentle earthiness and is not bitter.
