Wine

The Perfect Pairing 

Lobster is one of those flavors you don’t want to mask with a bunch of sauce and seasonings. Usually, all it needs to brighten its natural flavors is some butter or a light wine sauce, as anything else might overwhelm its decadent, yet delicate, flavors.The best pairing for lobster and wine would be Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc, both of which blend well to non-complex seafood dishes with subtle flavors. They don’t overpower the natural taste of lobster, but instead help to brighten it up with their fruity tastes.
