The combination of wine and chocolate creates a sensuous pleasure for our taste buds.

Fine Cooking pairs different kinds of chocolates with the appropriate wine to ensure a delicious experience. But, wine isnâ€™t the only thing you can pair with chocolate to create a sensory delight. Pleasure is multiplied when you include more than one sense. Pairing flowers with chocolate involves our sense of smell, taste and sight â€“ a triple indulgence.
