Chateau Musar 2003 Lebanon & Dark Truffles 135g
Pairing chocolate and red wine can be a challenge that most are not prepared to face, but it can also be one of the most extraordinary gastronomic experiences of your life. Dark chocolate due to its lower sweetness levels can enhance the fruit flavours of the wine and create a marvellous tension between the tannic finish of a full bodied red and the bitter finish of the chocolate.

and August were not as hot as years gone by. Serge Hochar makes his famous wine from grapes in the Bekaa Valley and is keen to embrace the differences thrown up by each vintage and produce a wine that represents that year. There are some constants and the blend is aged for nearly a year in French Nevers oak. It is bottled in it's third year and cellared for 4 more years prior to release. The vintage is deep ruby in colour with notes of plum, blackcurrant, and spice. On the palate prune, liquorice, spice and dark cherry, with a long finish and vibrant acidity.
Charbonnel & Walker Truffles - a perfect match for fine red wines. Dark Marc de Champagne Truffles are lightly dusted with cocoa with a delicious Champagne truffle centre - mixed with a little rum. Marc de champagne is a clear liquor distilled from the pomace of pressed champagne grapes and is part of the secret ingredient of the delicate scent and unique flavour of Charbonnel & Walker's creamy Marc de Champagne truffles.
If you require large quantities of truffles for an event or gifts please contact us before hand as they will need to be made to order and take up to three weeks to produce.
