Lobster tasting menu - pairing advice
- annamikemc Jan 12, 2011 12:12 PM
Hi all, I am going to a special lunch at my local BYO that features different lobster preparations. I know that a variety of whites are good with lobster, but I am trying to determine what the best choice is since the courses are varied.
Lobster BLT with Lobster Bisque
Lobster Roulade with Shrimp Pasta, Vegetable "Angel Hair", Beurre Rouge
I was first thinking a white Burgundy for the Thermidor, but then I thought maybe a Sancerre or Pouilly Fume would be better to stand up to the ceviche?
Also I'd like to keep the cost under $40 if possible.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Chablis will work best all around, and also splits the difference between "white burgundy," which I presume meant Cote de Beaune, and the unoaked, high acid Loire wines you mentioned. Lots of choices in good Chablis under $40, with specifics depending on where you live. Just about anywhere, for example, Verget will have several offerings.
