A Guide To Pairing Wine With Different Types Of Chocolate

Wine and chocolate are the ultimate flavour combination. When paired together, the flavours of both are elevated, creating an indulgent and superior experience. At Lir, we believe that our perfect pairing suggestions will delight your senses and leave you wanting more.   

Lir Dark Chocolate Truffles and Pinot Noir 

Our Dark Chocolate Truffles have a rich cocoa aroma and are infused with Madagascan vanilla. The semi-sweet flavour of this dark chocolate truffle should be matched with a lighter, medium-bodied red wine. We recommend pairing it with a Pinot Noir which embodies dry flavours with bright acidity. The complex fruity tang of the Pinot Noir, including hints of cherry and raspberry serve as an excellent backdrop to the dark chocolate.  

Lir Dark Chocolate Mint Bar and Cabernet Sauvignon 

Our Dark Chocolate Mint Bar is the ultimate blend of our finest dark chocolate with a refreshing peppermint centre. For a perfect after dinner treat, our crisp and refreshing mint chocolate should be paired with a heavier, full-bodied red wine. We recommend pairing it with a Cabernet Sauvignon, a match made in heaven!  High in tannins, this wine embodies the strong flavour of the mint perfectly.  

Lir Milk Chocolate Truffles with Merlot 

Our Milk Chocolate Truffles have a soft and refined flavour and are infused with Madagascan vanilla. The smooth character and cocoa butter components of this milk chocolate should be matched with a medium-bodied red wine. We recommend pairing it with a Merlot, as the ripe, red fruit and silky tannins of the wine will work wonders when paired with the chocolate.
