Giving gifts for any gourmands this year? How about an oenophile? Chocolate lovers? This will cover them all and is bound to be savored. Brix Chocolates are premium grade blocks of chocolate meant to be enjoyed with specific wines depending on their percent cocoa content. For instance, the Milk Chocolate (45% cocoa) is designed for lighter reds and dessert wines (Pinot Noir, Rosé, Burgundy, Ice Wine and Port) whereas the Medium (60% cocoa) is more tailored for Syrahs and Zinfandels and the Dark (70% cocoa) pairs best with full-bodied reds (Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux, and Borolo).
You can purchase any of Brix 8 ounce bars in sets of three for $38.85 or the Brix Gift Set, which includes a solid cherry cutting board and matching knife, for $49.95. There are also specialty chocolate barks scattered with nuts and fruit which are similar to palate-based nuances in many wines for just $25.90 for one pound.
Love chocolate? Check. Enjoy wine? Check. Knowing which one to pair with its tasty counterpart? Done.
