Champagne Brochetto d'oro... a raspberry champagne paired with a great chocolate torte is Fantastic. If you can find this champagne, it runs about $30 a 750ml. It is not some lame 'chic' flavored sparkling, but the real deal! Try it... you'll like it.
A number of years ago at Ch, lafite in Pulliac bordeoux did a backwards dinner with Ch Yquem , witch is a sautern. they started the dinner with seared foie gras with carmilezed tourned pears and sautern/pear aspic and searved with Yquem and then they had a chocolate dessert (forgotwhat it was ) but they served lafite with the dessert! Lafite has a tendency to have hints of cocoa, sweet spice and anise in its charector.the meal was wonderful and proved a point that you can go against what is perseved to be the only way do drink wine, and show that a wine with a great match as far as bouquet and taste and respect for the sutle flavoures of the food to be served can work.Try it sometime. its alot of fun. ofcourse most of us will have to find alternitives to lafite and Yquem $$$$$$$ But there out there
