Valrhona Dark GUANAJA 70% Stick
Bordeaux’s left bank (aka Cabernet Sauvignon based, with a good amount of Cabernet France and Merlot) is a perfect pairing here. This strong, nutty and fruity chocolate brings out the cassis and dark cherry of the wine. GUANAJA’s mix of flavors blend well with Bordeaux’s blend of grapes. An Australian Shiraz/Grenache blend brings out a tangy yet creamy side of GUANAJA. For the sweeter side, try a slightly sparkling Moscato d’Asti from the region of Piedmont in Italy. The citrus and peach driven fruit and bubbles pop their way into the fruit and nuttiness of the chocolate.
This meaty, dark mocha, dry and tannic chocolate deserves a beer just as bitter and almost as bold as it is. A Double Chocolate Stout is rich, full-bodied and concentrated, yet will nicely balance with the intensity and complexity of the chocolate. To counterbalance the 'sauvage' characteristics of the chocolate, a Dark India Pale Ale with strong floral and citrus notes will sweeten and soften the almost harsh finish of this chocolate.
