Marriage chocolate of seabed aging wine
Subrina sleeping at the bottom of the sea
Since 2011, we have been trying to change various alcoholic beverages by aging them under the sea for several years under the name of “Venus Project – In Search of Dream Undersea Aged Wine”. “SUBRINA, a wine aged at the bottom of the sea”, which was born as part of this, has sold “ACT1 2011”, “ACT2 2016”, and “ACT 2019” in the last 10 years, and is especially popular with many people in the gift and gift scene. We continue to sell out all of our selections.
“ACT4 2020”, which is currently on sale, is based on the key message of “one and only gift that engraves the memory of the sea in your heart”, and is based on the key message of “coexistence with nature”, “creating with the region”, and “special spending time with undersea aged wine”. The theme is “a moment”.
This time, as a limited gift for the Valentine’s Day and White Day season, a collaboration with “LIFENRI” led by the up-and-coming chocolatier Chef Yuki Shimizu has been realized, and a marriage chocolate for adults who is intoxicated both physically and mentally was born.
Marriage of wine and chocolate is generally considered to be difficult, but we carefully considered the recipe to match the volume of SUBRINA wine, the concentration and transparency of the fruit, and the refreshing acidity. It has become a bon bon chocolat.
When paired with SUBRINA wine, the wine and chocolate melt in your mouth, complementing each other with complex layers of flavor. Just like a course meal, you can spend a luxurious time slowly enjoying the change, fusion, and afterglow.
It is a perfect item as a gift for your loved ones or as a reward for yourself. ■ About LIFENRI

4 mariage bonbon chocolates with different aromas and flavors [Image 5
A bonbon chocolat that directly expresses submarine aged wine SUBRINA. Two layers of confiture and bitter ganache. In order to make the most of SUBRINA’s fresh yet full-bodied taste, confiture brings out the aroma and fruitiness of the wine, while bitter ganache brings out the sourness and flavor. If you put it in your mouth with SUBRINA wine, you will feel richer aroma of ripe fruit. *Contains 1% alcohol.
A straight bitter ganache made with 64% chocolate from Madagascar, which has a high rarity value and is close to SUBRINA from South Africa. It features a gorgeous flavor like red berries. Cacao nibs are scattered on the decor, and you can feel the power of cacao itself. You can fully enjoy the mellow aroma and acidity of berries by pairing it with SUBRINA.
A bitter ganache that gives you a sense of the power of cacao with the mellow sweetness and umami of Guerande salt from the Brittany region of France. Add coarsely chopped black olives to accent the texture. The faint saltiness and bitterness of chocolate bring out the taste of olives, making SUBRINA even more mellow. With a form inspired by whirlpools.
Grind lightly caramelized hazelnuts with the skin coarsely until the texture remains to make a homemade praline paste. Combined with 40% cacao chocolate, one grain with a milky sweetness and a rich hazelnut scent. The roasted aroma of nuts marries beautifully with the barrel aroma of SUBRINA, allowing you to enjoy a complex aftertaste. The sweetness of caramel can also be used as a dessert to finish off. For the finish, I expressed a single line that imaged the horizon of the sea.
