Lobster Grilled Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 1 live lobster, about 1 1/2 lb (680 g)
  • 4 cups (1 L) court bouillon
  • 6 oz (170 g) aged Brie de Meaux, cold
  • 4 slices of focaccia, at least 3/4″ in (2 cm) thick
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) soft butter
  • 6-8 slices crisp pancetta
  • 6 tbsp (90 mL) lemon-garlic aioli

2013 Gewürztraminer Riesling

 

A blend of Riesling and Gewurztraminer. This wine shows an abundance of flavours and aromas from both the Gewurztraminer and the Riesling while still having a crisp lingering finish.

Pale lemon in colour. The nose entices from the beginning with notes of pineapple and golden delicious apple. These fruit flavours are complimented by notes of peach and ripe exotic fruits with a fresh acidity and clean finish.

Pair with: – Spicy Asian fare – Slow-braised pork belly with a fennel and citrus salad.
