What makes Rothschild Chocolate and Champagne a winning combination?
Although pairing chocolate and Champagne sounds natural, it can actually be quite a challenging partnership if you wish to get the most out of both of them.
The unique sweetness and bitterness from chocolate can cause the flavour to clash with refreshments of a bubbly nature.
However, taking advice from our in house chocolatiers, we have found the perfect marriage with our signature Barons de Rothschild Champagne. We have two options the Barons de Rothschild Brut - A flavour with a strong assertive opening that leads into a well-rounded wine and with its extra fruitiness of raspberry undertones, the Barons de Rothschild Rose will help define the delectable chocolate notes found in our single origin, organic chocolate.
We have found our Chocolate Truffles are a classic choice with Champagne. Appealing to all palates ranging from our House Dark which is rich and earthy, House Milk with notes of caramel and hazelnuts, a green, fresh tasting Classic Pistachio available in Dark & Milk chocolate and a Milk Chocolate Barons de Rothschild Champagne Truffle which in its own right is a taste sensation of luxury all rolled onto one little ball.
As an alternative bubbly on the sweeter side which is decadent as well as delicious we have Chocolate in a Bottle (CiaB) - Pale yellow in colour this French sparkling wine was created from 100% Chardonnay grape and produced using the classic Champagne method. Infused with the delicate notes of hazelnut and Cacao, this outstanding combination perfectly blends with the sweetness of chocolate.
We would recommend you pair this with our Strawberry and Basil, Praline and of course our award winning Dark Sea Salt Caramel Chocolates, each offering an exclusive pairing taste experience.
There are no rules with this pairing – some people love it and some don’t. In the end, tasting any type of Champagne or sparkling wine with chocolate will be an interesting and enjoyable experience, so go ahead and choose your favourites and see what you like.
