Lindt EXCELLENCE sets the standard by which other chocolate is measured across the world. When you savor EXCELLENCE, the exquisite taste and sumptuous flavors reflect the premium ingredients, rigorous process, and the passion and experience of the Lindt Master Chocolatiers. The thin, refined profile melts evenly to reveal complex layers of flavor. Learn how to discover Lindt EXCELLENCE with all of your senses and how host your own dark chocolate and wine pairing party!

SIGHT

Examine the chocolate’s color and note the sheen, is it matte or shiny?

TOUCH

Feel the surface of the chocolate, is it smooth or rough and grainy?

SOUND

Break the bar, listen for the crisp loud snap. A distinct snap and clean break are signs of quality.

SMELL

Breathe in the fragrance and aroma of the chocolate. What aromas can you identify?

TASTE

Allow the chocolate to melt on your tongue. What flavors can you identify?

Now you are ready to pair Lindt EXCELLENCE with your favorite wine varietals.

To expertly pair dark chocolate and different wine varietals, follow the steps below.

  • First, taste both the chocolate and wine individually.
  • Then, to begin the pairing, take another piece of chocolate. Savor the taste as it slowly melts in your mouth.
  • When the last lingering notes of chocolate are all that remain, take a sip of wine. Hold the wine in your mouth, allowing it to coat your palate.
  • Notice the complex changes in taste as the wine mingles with the residual chocolate flavor.

The right wine is essential to a successful pairing. Choose your favorites of the following varietals to pair with Lindt EXCELLENCE.

    I really enjoyed the 78% with Pinot Noir but all of the dark chocolate varieties with rich reds are great. I also like Reisling with white chocolate. I’m sure we can all agree that Lindt makes delicious confections!

    Something with a sparkling wine like Muscato di Asti a light fruity wine. That would be a great combination. An after dinner treat perhaps.
