Today (Day #4 of Chocolate and Wine Theme Week) I enjoyed a Champagne truffle -- the last piece in a Wine Country Chocolates 7-piece black, round assortment box. I liked that I could taste a bit more of the wine/grape (champagne) flavor in this truffle, compared to the red wine flavored truffles I tasted earlier this week. It can be tough to rate similar truffles. So much goes into the perception of taste. Factors include temperature and age of a chocolate; time of day an item was eaten; or the taster's level of hunger and/or thirst -- to name a few.
