Last week I was invited to a chocolate & wine pairing that Rococo had organised at Le Vieux Comptoir, one of their new Marylebone neighbours.
I’ve been to plenty of chocolate & wine parings before, and to be perfectly honest, I’m not much of a wine pairing. I love to see how flavours have been matched, but I have to confess I’m usually more more interested in the chocolate than the wine.
This event was a little different though, and by far the most interesting and surprising chocolate pairing I’ve been to. I don’t want to give away too much about it; suffice to say the wine choices were surprising and worked fantastically well. Some wines were paired with multiple chocolates allowing you to compare straight flavour matches with something a little more thoughtful, while other chocolates completely transformed the flavour of the wine they were paired with.
The tasting will be repeated at Rococo’s shop in Moxon Street, Marylebone on November 7th, and if you’re at all interested in wine or chocolate, I highly recommend it. If there’s enough interest, Rococo tell me they will add more events, but I recommend booking quickly just in case!
