Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Muscadet, Riesling
Shellfish works really well with Chardonnay, Muscadet, and Riesling. Buttery chardonnay is great for scallops, shrimp, crab, and lobster, while muscadet is a classic pick for mussels, oysters, and clams. If you've got some spice in your shellfish, a semi-dry riesling can balance out the heat. The Xavier Monnot Bourgogne Les Grandes Coutures Chardonnay with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 30 dollars per bottle.
Xavier Monnot Bourgogne Les Grandes Coutures ChardonnayChardonnay Les Grandes Coutures is from three plots bordering Meursault with vine ages from 15 to 51 years. Soils are predominantly argile (clay), bringing weight and texture to this Bourgogne Blanc.The 2015 vintage shows aromas of ripe melon, hazelnut, and lemon custard, and tend to be broader and more textural than wines from neighboring villages. Aging small French oak barrels lends notes of toast and vanilla.White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aged Chardonnay from warmer climates lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.
