THE BOLDEST of the Brix blends, the Extra Dark version has a cocoa content of 70% that helps offset the massive tannins in full-bodied reds and Ports.
Great on its own or with bold Cabernet, Malbec, Saint-Émilion, young Port or Brandy.
American doctor Nick Proia developed Brix after being repeatedly frustrated in his attempts to enjoy two of his great pleasures - wine and chocolate - together. After plenty of trial and error, Nick crafted the four blends of what would later be called Brix – the first chocolate specifically made to complement wine
At the root of Brix is single-estate Ghanaian chocolate, known for its unique red fruit tones, mixed with the finest-quality confectionery chocolate. The result is a blend so pure in flavour that it actually enhances the nuances found in wines - without muddying the palate.
The name 'Brix' comes from the US unit of measurement for the sugar content of grapes - or their ripeness, in other words - at harvest time.

Style: Bold, dusky, 70% cacao
