Over Easter your household may harbour rather more chocolate than usual. Can chocolate be paired with wine? Convention and most wine literature says not.

„There is one form of chocolate, however, that is perfectly happy with dry red table wines. Creative chefs all over the world seem increasingly to be using unsweetened chocolate in savoury dishes. Recently at Appellation restaurant in the Barossa Valley I was served a puree of bitter chocolate, black pudding and morels under a fillet of melting beef from a Wagyu Angus cross by Peter Gilmore, usually based at Quay in Sydney. Henschke's complex, full-bodied Hill of Grace 1996 and 2008 went beautifully with it with no sacrifice of subtlety.
