Save 10% On All Chardonnay! 

Celebrate the opening of crawfish season with delicious chardonnay!

Whether you’re grilling, mincing or steaming your lobster, our hands-down favourite wine to pair is a lovely chardonnay. With our range of chardonnay options you’re sure to find the perfect pairing for your meal! 

Wine of The Month: Domaine Pernot Belicard Bourgogne Cote D’Or Chardonnay 

Originating from a small, six-hectare domaine located in the heart of Puligny-Montrachet, this chardonnay  is beautifully balanced.  

This dry, full-bodied white wine features pleasant floral-citrus aromas with an elegant minerality in the mouth and fresh acidity. 

Enjoy with pasta, rich fish and, of course, freshly caught crawfish.   

Regular Price:  $49.50

This Month:  $44.55

Spirit of The Month: Citadelle Gin

New to Young’s Fine Wine, Citadelle Gin was created by Alexandre Gabriel in 1996 and is made from juniper berries harvested at Maison Ferrand’s Chateau de Bonbonnet in the Cognac region of France. 

With notable botanicals including juniper, cardamom and nutmeg, Citadelle is a classically-tasting gin with a notable spicy finish. It is perfect when highlighted in a martini, or when adding a contemporary flavour to floral cocktails.   

Regular Price:  $30.25

This Month:  $27.23

Libations & Lobster

Crawfish, or spiny lobster, season is one of our favourite times of the year. There’s nothing better than buttery, grilled crawfish paired with a delicious beverage. Some of our favourite libations are below. 

Wine: A medium-bodied, oaked Chardonnay is a perfect companion for buttery lobster dishes.  Try the Hartford Court Russian River Valley Chardonnay – $60.50

Gin: Try a classic, crisp gin martini; gin adds a touch of citrusy flavour which helps to balance the sweetness in your lobster dish. We suggest Citadelle Gin – $30.25

Tequila: For agave lovers the  tangy and salty flavour of a traditional margarita is a delicious lobster companion. We suggest Tromba Blanco Tequila –  $42.35

Rum: Enjoy a classic mojito; the lime and mint flavours pair perfectly with a nice, fresh lobster dish. We recommended Plantation 3-Star White Rum – $22.00
