Summertime Lobster Roll and a Provence Rosè #Winophiles

 Summer in Provence conjures up images of lavender fields, olive trees, and, bien sûr, wine - rosé, to be precise. Of the 123 million bottles of wine produced each year in warm, sunny Provence, almost 90% are rosé. Yet, Provence is also a producer of reds and whites. I paired a lobster roll with a rose that was delicious.  Then join us on Instagram for an interview with author and wine writer Jill Barth on Friday, 8/18, at 11 am PT/2 pm ET. Jill is a writer, author, and, of course, she's a Winophile! She's also an expert on Provence.

I paired my lobster roll with a delicious rosé, a 2021 Billette that we thought paired beautifully with the lobster.  From our wine store:

Attractive delicate pink, really elegant, sparkling brilliance. Impression of a bunch of spring wildflowers with some notes of red berries and peach. Attractively fresh and muscular wine. Astonishingly uniform and round. Gentle in the mouth, while offering the distinctness, delicacy, and tremendous freshness of grapefruit flavors.

The pairing says to serve it with salads and crab, but we improvised and used lobster instead.  The two flavors worked together to provide a delicate but tasty combination.

  1. Lobster roll is one of my favorite foods and always reminds me of vacations in Maine. Bet it was amazing with that wine!
