Petits Noirs boutique helps pair chocolate with wine
We were alerted to this boutique chocolate company via Cheap Fun Wines. Petits Noir is a based on Oregon, and takes their cues from the local produce and also from the complexity of the flavors found in their "terroir" (to use a wine term). It makes sense being headquartered in Oregon, with its Pinot Noirs and other wines. The end result are chocolates that are not your run-of-the-mill, with flavors lik thyme, lavender, clove, and cassis. Naturally, their chocolates are natural pairings with wines - designed to complement certain notes in wines. They recommend trying their cardamom or toasted anise seed with a luscious red wine, such as a Syrah or a Cabernet Sauvignon.
