Lobster is one of the richest yet most delicate seafood dishes. Traditionally steamed and served with drawn butter, lobster is a natural match for a rich, buttery Chardonnay that mimics both the flavor of the butter and the intensity and silky texture of the lobster. 

Other lobster preparations tend to either be in a spicy, Asian vein, where a bright rich white like Riesling or Pinot Blanc would be in order, or along the lines of Lobster Thermidor, a creamy preparation where the richness of the biggest Chardonnay is often the best match.
