Discover the art of food and wine pairing with Chablis

Chablis, the refreshing dry white wine of Burgundy, has long been recognised as one of the jewels of French viticulture. Made exclusively from the Chardonnay grape variety and available under four appellations (Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru, Chablis Grand Cru), this great wine offers a unique taste experience thanks to its distinctive characteristics. One of the most fascinating aspects of tasting Chablis is exploring the perfect pairings to bring out its subtle flavours and elegant minerality. Generally speaking, Chablis goes particularly well with seafood, especially oysters and grilled fish, as well as white meats, cheeses and regional specialities. Whether it's for a convivial aperitif with friends or to accompany a gourmet meal, Chablis is an ideal companion to share with your loved ones!


How to pair a Chablis Grand Cru?

An exceptional wine, a Chablis Grand Cru deserves culinary pairings that match its quality. Its maximum concentration of flavours and distinct minerality make it the ideal companion for a memorable gastronomic experience. With its delicate marine nuances, seafood such as langoustines, lobster and caviar are a perfect match for the wine's freshness and liveliness. In addition, dishes based on noble fish such as sole meunière, wild salmon and monkfish bring out the subtle flavours of Chablis Grand Cru. For cheese lovers, pairing with powerful cheeses such as Roquefort or Munster creates a beautiful synergy, where the acidity of the wine balances the richness of the cheese. These pairings offer a balanced and elegant taste experience that allows this rare and precious wine to shine at the table.


What to eat with a Chablis premier Cru?

With its exceptional aromatic complexity, Chablis Premier Cru offers a wide range of pairing possibilities. It is perfect with white-fleshed fish in a butter sauce, where the freshness and minerality of the wine harmoniously complement the texture and flavour of the fish. A Chablis Premier Cru is a wonderful accompaniment to Japanese cuisine, particularly sushi, fried tofu and soy rice dishes, bringing out the subtlety of the ingredients. You can also consider stronger dishes based on smoked fish or seafood risottos, which allow the wine to express itself fully. The more mineral crus will enhance refined poultry dishes and veal in white sauce, such as the traditional blanquette, while the more open crus will go perfectly with grilled andouillettes and snails à la bourguignonne. A Premier Cru with character will also enhance a Chablis ham, a local gastronomic speciality. Although it is unusual to pair asparagus with Chablis, it can add a pleasant touch of bitterness that will enhance the minerality of the wine. Finally, mature cheeses such as Comté or Gruyère add a tasty finishing touch to this unique gastronomic experience.


What to serve with a Chablis?

The 'classic' Chablis offers a perfect balance of acidity, minerality and texture. Its aromas of green apple, pear and lemon go wonderfully with a variety of dishes. As an aperitif, Chablis elegantly complements the sweet, subtle texture of sushi, exotic cuisine or other Indian dishes. Serve it with grilled or pan-fried seafood, such as scallops or lobster. Chablis brings a freshness that enhances the delicacy of these refined dishes. White poultry dishes, such as capon de Bresse with a lemon sauce, go harmoniously with the aromatic profile of Chablis. Finally, if you opt for cheese, soft cheeses such as Brie or Camembert are excellent choices, as their creaminess harmonises well with the texture of the wine.


What dish to serve with Petit Chablis?

Petit Chablis surprises with its subtle iodine aromas, making it an ideal companion for oysters, fish tartars and raw prawns, grilled or in sauce. It also goes well with river fried fish, grilled sardines and many other fish dishes. Its liveliness makes it an energetic wine, capable of making fine regional pairings and balancing dishes such as andouillette and snails. Petit Chablis also goes well with cheese, whether fresh goat's cheese or pressed or cooked cheeses such as Gouda or Gruyère. Finally, its freshness makes it a delicious accompaniment to summer salads, quiche lorraine, or simply to share convivial moments with friends. Petit Chablis embodies simplicity and pleasure, adapting gracefully to a variety of dishes for pleasurable moments of tasting.

How to serve this exceptional white wine?

Serving a Chablis white wine requires particular attention to temperature to appreciate all its flavours and aromas. Before serving this delicious white wine, be sure to chill it to the right temperature. You can place the bottle in the fridge for a few hours before serving. If the wine is too cold, it can mask the aromas, so be careful not to over-chill it. Use tulip-shaped white wine glasses. These glasses help to concentrate the aromas and make it easier to enjoy the wine. For specific serving temperatures, Petit Chablis is best served at around 8°C, ideal for bringing out its freshness and light character, perfect as an aperitif. Chablis and Chablis Premier Cru are generally served between 10°C and 11°C. If you have stored them in the fridge, take them out about 30 minutes before drinking to reach this temperature. In the case of Chablis Grand Cru, because of its complexity and robustness, the recommended serving temperature is slightly higher, between 12°C and 14°C, which allows its complex aromas to be fully revealed. By following these serving recommendations, you can fully appreciate the subtleties and beauty of this exceptional white wine.
