Esporao Touriga Nacional 75cl & 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. Whether you’re a full on wine lover or an adventurous foodie this is a pairing you just can’t say no to!

and the outcome of intense experimentation and collaboration between the winemaking and viticulture teams at Herdade do Esporo. This involves the vinification of small blends of the same grape variety from different plots, in which the final goal is to understand and enhance the character of each grape associated with the type of soil and microclimate where it is grown. The result of the continuous trials is the launch of such unique wines, each variety producing limited quantities.
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 can be made to order and take up to three weeks to produce.
