Best paired with

Pair our Raspberry rose chocolate truffle with your favorite Pinot Noir. For the best experience, select a Pinot Noir that exemplifies these flavor profiles: bright red fruit, black cherry, raspberry, & floral.

Pinot Noir, one of the oldest grape varieties in the world, is believed to have originated in the Burgundy region of France. It has gained a reputation as a “temperamental” grape due to its challenging cultivation requirements contributing to its notorious difficulty to grow.

Pinot Noir is generally lighter to medium-bodied, resulting in a smoother and more delicate mouthfeel due to its lower tannin levels. Notable areas renowned for producing exceptional Pinot Noir include the Willamette Valley in Oregon, Sonoma and the Russian River Valley in California, Marlborough in New Zealand, and various regions in Australia, Germany, and Italy.

Pinot Noir’s versatility makes it a fantastic wine for food pairing. Its acidity and fruit-forward character allow it to complement a wide range of dishes, including roasted poultry, grilled fish, earthy mushroom dishes, and even some lighter red meats. Pinot Noir is also known for its expressive aromatics. It often exhibits notes of red berries like cherry and raspberry, along with floral undertones such as violet. With age, the wine can develop more complex aromas like earth, black truffle, and forest floor.

The pairing experience

Pinot Noir, renowned for its elegant and nuanced character, discovers its divine match in our Raspberry Rose Chocolate Truffle. The wine’s velvety texture gracefully complements the creamy milk chocolate, creating a symphony of indulgence on the palate. Delighting in flawless harmony, the tart and floral notes of the chocolate truffle effortlessly blend with the wine’s complexity and subtle nuances. Silky tannins and delicate red fruit flavors interweave seamlessly with the tangy raspberries, while the infusion of rose petals elevates the wine’s aromatic profile to new heights. Additionally, the natural acidity and floral nuances of hibiscus accentuate the fruity notes, imbuing the wine with an extra layer of complexity.
