A smooth and silky wine – like Pinot Noir – is perfect to sip alongside a square of Lindt Excellence Sea Salt. The tart taste of the sea salt enhances the sweet chocolate flavour whilst balancing the fruity aromas of the wine. The result is a powerful burst of flavour.
Lindt Excellence Mint Intense and Cabernet Sauvignon
For an exceptionally refreshing after-dinner treat, pour a glass of cabernet sauvignon to enjoy with a square of Lindt Excellence Mint Intense. The cool notes in the chocolate pair nicely with crisp minty notes of cold climate cabernet sauvignon. Wines with eucalyptus notes also work exceptionally well with this refreshing chocolate.
Lindt Excellence 70% and Pinot Noir
A delicate red wine serves to elevate the rich flavour and smooth texture of Lindt Excellence 70%. The fruit-driven aroma and hints of spice characterising a pinot noir serve as a dark backdrop to the chocolate. Alternatively, try a sparkling shiraz for added lightness.
