Nothing speaks of autumn in Hong Kong more than hairy crab. Named for their trademark hirsute claws, hairy crabs – also know as Chinese mitten crabs – are highly sought-after among foodies for their creamy and golden roes and juicy meat. Here are four Chablis wines to pair with the delicacy.
Petit Chablis and steamed hairy crab

Petit Chablis, a great entry point to Chablis wines offering great value and accessibility as a superb aperitif, is recommended by the wine association to pair with Steamed Fresh Hairy Crab, for zesty freshness that brings out the essential sweetness of the delicacy in its purest form.

Domaine Courtault Petit Chablis 2016 is considered a fine contender for this match.
