Wine Tip

Cabernet Sauvignon, 2011
Robust red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon perfectly complement this dark chocolate creation. The wine leaves a chocolaty nuance behind and gently plays with the full-flavored dessert.

Step 1

Double chocolate tart

Preheat the oven to 180°C/355°F. For the base, mix part of the cold, cubed butter, sugar, milk, and a pinch of salt together. Next, add flour and work into a smooth dough.
