Lindt EXCELLENCE 70% + Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
This Cabernet Sauvignon from Josh Cellars offers a palate of bright red cherries, blackberry, vanilla, and subtle toasted oak. Pair it with the balanced and rich EXCELLENCE 70% Cocoa, a full bodied dark chocolate featuring notes of red currants, leather, and roasted nuts. They are a match in both depth and body. They share a long finish and a creaminess that coats the palate.
Lindt EXCELLENCE 85% + Ethiopean Sidamo Flat White Coffee
Ethiopean Sidamo beans are best enjoyed as a strong flat white when paired with the robust EXCELLENCE 85% . The bar’s aromas of dried fruit, tobacco, and earth are complemented by the subtle tanginess and chocolate undertones of the coffee. The creaminess of the Flat White enhances the cocoa experience, highlighting hints of vanilla in the dark chocolate while providing a rounded mouth feel.
Lindt EXCELLENCE 90% + Ardbag 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch
This masterful pairing is for the true dark chocolate connoisseur and scotch lover. The earthy, toasted nut, and liquorice profile of EXCELLENCE 90% melds beautifully with the peat smoke, black pepper, and espresso notes of the scotch. They are a perfect match in flavor intensity, balance, and length of finish. This pairing is rich, powerful, and bold. Neither the scotch nor the chocolate lose their uniqueness. Tasting them together is an elevated and superb experience.
Lindt EXCELLENCE A Touch of Sea Salt + Aged Gouda
Aged Gouda is complex. It’s sharp yet sweet, delivering an intense almost salted caramel taste profile. EXCELLENCE A Touch of Sea Salt pairs beautifully with Aged Gouda. The dark chocolate has the right amount of cocoa to compliment the cheese while the fleur de sel (hand harvested French sea salt) adds texture and enhances the flavor experience. Cheese and Chocolate? Yes, it’s just wonderful!
