Chocolate and wine tasting ‘Chocolate terroirs' 

Silky, intense, subtle, sensual, spicy.... Chocolate is to gastronomy what wine is to Burgundy, an inestimable richness, which awakens the senses and invites moments of conviviality.  So why not bring them together to celebrate their mutual elegance?
