Continuing my recent posts about beer and chocolate, my good friend and colleague, Stephen Beaumont, in his monthly feature for February, also tackles pairing the two. He nicely takes to task fellow Canadian wine writer Natalie MacLean, for her own list of wines to pair with Valentine’s Day treats. Beaumont takes her list of ten chocolate desserts and suggests some delightful sounding matches. Since her original wine pairings came from an e-mailed newsletter, I don’t know what wines she chose for the desserts (NOTE: Ms. MacLean has been kind enough to post those wine pairings in a comment, to see them please click on “Comments” below), but they can’t have been anywhere near as perfect as the beer. It will be certainly interesting to see if MacLean takes the bait and agrees to a side-by-side tasting of both.
