Make the raspberry compote:

In a small saucepan, placed the rinsed raspberries and a teaspoon of icing sugar and place over a low heat. Stir gently,  Once heated, the berries will have softened and released their liquid - taste this liquid and add shot of Framboise liqueur and extra sugar if desired. Simmer for a minute and then remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Make the dark chocolate mousse:

Place the chocolate into the bowl over a pot of simmering water and allow to melt completely.

Wine and Music 

A desert wine i love and will go together well  Maydie 08 Tannat Madiran Red Sweet Wine
This sweet liqueur wine made from Tannat has a deep red color and offers powerful aromas of black fruit and variations of dried fruits with walnuts and grilled almonds. Maydie is best enjoyed when served between 12° and 15°C, either as an aperitif or a dessert wine.
Odd name but hey :)
