that’s how you roll with lobster and wine

lobster rollsA few wines are pretty much perfect for lobster. I love a light, minerally Chardonnay from Burgundy – nothing gets in the way of the white fish and it’s elegant and simple. A pale Provencal rose is great for cold seafood lunches on the water- just something low in alcohol that washes it down and adds to your fun. And Muscadet is also a shellfish go-to because it’s acidic, crisp and clean, mildly fizzy and almost a bit salty.  It’s from theLoire region and made from the Melon de Bourgogne grape. People say it’s the perfect accompaniment to oysters, and it is quite awesome with them although I prefer Champagne. But it’s also pretty great for a lobster roll lunch.

Btw, lobster rolls are so easy to make. Just mix lobster chucks, a tiny bit of mayo, salt and pepper and put it into toasted, buttered buns. YUMNESS.

  1. Oh, sounds yummy! Being in the middle of the desert (Las Vegas) lunches on the water, are a little hard to come by. My neighbors have a wading pool for their kids, though …

  2. Looks like the lunches we’ve been eating in the Gaspésie region of Quebec this past week. They add chopped lettuce to their lobster rolls as well.
