Elegant bites & Chablis

A bright white wine from its namesake northernmost wine region of Burgundy, France, Chablis wines are made from 100 percent Chardonnay grapes. Characterized by a greenish-yellow color and star bright clarity, Chablis wines often have a flinty or steely character, green apple-like acidity, and tend to mellow with age. Chablis wines pair extraordinarly well with seafood as well as tomatoes and mild cheese, as you'll see in the following four fabulous Chablis-kissed appetizer recipes.

Appetizers with Chablis

Scallops Carpaccio

Serves 2

Carpaccio, typically a dish composed of thinly sliced extremely fresh raw meat, veal, venison, or tuna, becomes a succulent seafood appetizer featuring scallops in this Chablis-kissed recipe. If you prefer, you can thinly slice and saute lightly and chill before serving.

3 to 4 extremely fresh scallops
Grated zest of 1 lime
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon Chablis

Recommended pairing: Chablis Premier Cru

1. Slice scallops lengthwise as thinly as possible. Place in a bowl and add lime zest and soy sauce, tossing to coat.

2. Fan out on a plate or arrange in a small dish and drizzle with Chablis. Refrigerate until chilled. Serve garnished with minced flat-leaf parsley or shredded mint.
