Chablis and Chardonnay are great choices for Lobster. Chablis is perfect with lobster, but a chardonny from other regions is bound to hit the spot too. You could try Regnard Grand Chablis. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 49 dollars per bottle.
Regnard Grand ChablisA yellow color with green highlights. A fruity bouquet both expressive and reminiscent of white fruit (peaches) supported with mineral notes. The palate is fresh and superbly balanced between fat and acidity. The finish is mineral and gourmand.
