90 Point Zinfandel & Neuhaus Belgian Chocolate Truffles
The pairing of chocolate and wine is always special, but when the two are truly matched to perfection the experience can be something that’s not easily forgotten. At Wine.com we fell in love with the Neuhaus Belgium Chocolate Truffles and carefully selected a wine that would enhance the chocolates and vice versa. This Paul Dolan Zinfandel stood up to that challenge and then some. We know that you and your gift recipients will enjoy this pairing as much as we do!
Wine Gift Set Includes:
- 2015 Paul Dolan Vineyards Zinfandel
A story of opposites attract. Mendocino County Zinfandel is known for its jammy berry quality and Amador County for its spicy Zins. The Paul Dolan Vineyards Zinfandel is the perfect flavor marriage with tastes of boysenberry preserves, black pepper, and orange marmalade.

This was, hands-down, Krader’s favorite. “Oh, my gosh,” she said. “I feel like I just fell into a pool of chocolate.” More to the point, the Neuhaus truffles did everything Krader said a good chocolate truffle should: The tender coating gave way to a luxurious whipped mousse filling, with layers of flavor. (“It comes in waves,” Krader said.) The units were big enough for two satisfying bites, and they tasted as if they'd been made five minutes earlier. “A chocolate like this makes you realize how many old chocolates you’ve eaten in your life,” she said. "And how many mediocre ones."
Neuhaus invented the Praline and has never stopped inventing. For more than 160 years, Neuhaus has been regarded as the quintessence of Belgian Chocolate excellence. Driven by a passion for innovation and a commitment to stay true to the standards of excellence their Master chocolatiers still uphold to this day. All Neuhaus pralines and truffles are still made entirely in Belgium and imported fresh weekly. Neuhaus proudly uses only UTZ-certified cocoa. The UTZ certification demands that the cocoa has been sourced following a strict code of conduct which helps to ensure better working conditions, wages and training for cocoa farmers and environmental protection for the land they farm.
Due to the popularity of this gift, wines or vintages sometimes sell out. Should this happen, we will always substitute with wines of equal or greater value. Pursuant to state laws in New York, gifts that contain both food and wine will be sent in two separate packages.
