There is nothing that epitomizes summer better than lobster! It instantly enhances any dish, especially a bright citrus salad paired beautifully with Frank Family’s Blanc de Blancs. The wine itself is delicately structured which allows the rich sweetness of the lobster to carry through to the palate. The concept of acid comes into play here as the wine’s high acidity matches the light, freshness of the dish. Serve this stunning pairing to open a multi-course meal or as a luxurious lunch, especially when served al fresco on a warm day.
