What to sip with ...
One surefire white wine match with lobster is one of the more difficult wines to pair with food overall: New World chardonnay. The general lack of acidity and tropical fruit flavors might give it widespread appeal as a wine by the glass, but it is a dud alongside most foods — except lobster, with which it acts as a surrogate, buttery "sauce."
