PRODUCT: Sarments de Médoc, Chocolate Twigs

In French, a sarment is the graceful, slender shoot of the grapevine. The Médoc region of Bordeaux knows all about them: It’s perhaps the most prestigious area of the most prestigious wine-growing region in the world. The Médoc is home to four of the five “first growth” Bordeaux wines: Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour, Château Margaux and Château Mouton Rothschild.

So what better homage than chocolate versions of those lovely vine shoots?

A chocolatier in the town of Margaux accidentally created these chocolate “twigs”* when a machine that made classic French chocolate sticks (chocolatines) became clogged. The results looked like vine shoots and the inspired chocolatier refined the “accidents” into thin chocolate twig confections. The next innovation was to make raspberry- and mint-flavored variations. Today they are available in:

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Dark Chocolate Mint
  • Dark Chocolate Orange
  • Dark Chocolate Rasberry
  • Milk Chocolate Caramel
  • Milk Chocolate Pear
  • They are an instant garnish of beauty, and a gourmet chocolate treat of wonderful flavor.

    These elegant chocolate twigs can be nibbled as a chocolate treat, from the box or on petit-fours/mignardises plate. But first and foremost, they are a stunning garnish:

  • Cocktail garnishes
  • Dessert garnishes
    Just one twig is stunning. A group of twigs, as shown with the mousse photo above, is a dish of beauty and wonder…and deliciousness.

    Look for Sarments de Médoc in specialty chocolate shops or online at



    *As noted previously, sarments are shoots, not twigs; but “chocolate shoots” isn’t too meaningful in English.
