Easter Selection
Easter is a time of celebration and sharing, often marked by special culinary traditions. Among the iconic foods of this holiday, one can find Easter chocolate and wine, two elements that can perfectly complement each other to offer a unique gustatory experience.

Easter chocolate is an ancient tradition that dates back to the 19th century. Chocolatiers started creating chocolate eggs to celebrate the Easter holiday, which symbolizes rebirth and renewal. Today, Easter chocolates have evolved and it is possible to find a wide variety of chocolates in the shape of eggs, rabbits, chickens, or even bells. Easter chocolate is an ideal gift for children, but also for adults who like to indulge.

To accompany Easter chocolate, wine is a wise choice. Red and white wines can both be successfully paired with chocolate. Red wines such as Bandol, Côte-Rôtie, Roussillon, etc. have rich and fruity aromas that go well with dark chocolates and chocolates with high cocoa content.

Quelques exemples de vins à déguster : 

The chocolate-wine pairing may seem surprising, but it works very well because both foods have complex aromas that complement each other. Chocolate has a sweet and rich flavor that can be balanced by the tannins in wine. Wine, on the other hand, has an acidity that can contrast with the sweetness of chocolate. The effervescence of sparkling wines can also add a sensation of lightness and freshness to the tasting.

Whether you are a chocolate or wine lover, do not hesitate to indulge in this bold combination during your Easter celebrations. Discover our selection!
