Furry autumn combo: Chablis and hairy crab

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.

For the richly textured dish of Hairy Crab Roe Mixed Noodles, BIVB opted for a Chablis Premier Cru from Billaud Simon Montée de Tonnerre’s 2016 vintage.

A step up of quality from Chablis, the Chablis Premier Cru tends to be rich and complex, and has a fresh, elegant and complexity to compliment the flavorful noodle dish.
