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.

Finally, the crème de la crème, Chablis Grand Cru, reserved mostly for special occasions, has a famously rich, bold, fleshy texture that beautifully compliments rich-flavoured Braised Rice with Hairy Crab Roe and Sea Urchin in Clay Pot and Pan-fried Japanese Scallop with Hairy Crab Roe, a sumptuous pan-fried specialty with elaborate ingredients.

A fitting choice as BIVB selected is Domaine Jean-Paul et Benoît Droin Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2017.
