Joseph Drouhin 2011 Chablis Domaine de Vaudon

by Karen on September 11th, 2013



Wish I had better lighting here but we are eating very late these days!

This meal was a perfect match for the 2011 Chablis from Joseph Drouhin.  As we wind down summer I am not ready to make way for fall and find myself opening various crisp white wines to enjoy.  This Chablis (Chardonnay) is from Burgandy.  It’s dry with mineral notes and a bit of lemon on the palate and a nice finish.  It’s a great food wine.

Here is an easy meal that you don’t even really need a recipe:

>Halibut pan-fried in a bit of butter and olive oil with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice (rinse and pat dry the halibut, in a hot pan -add butter and olive oil, place fish flesh side down and cook 5 minutes per inch thickness of fish then turn fish over and cook another 5 min or so until no longer translucent)

>Brown rice (in the rice cooker) with sauteed heirloom tomatoes in garlic, olive oil, and butter with salt and pepper

>Sauteed kale with carmelized onions, olive oil and a tablespoon of lemon juice added at the end.  (I used a half bag of chopped kale from Trader Joe’s and 1/2 medium onion).  Cook the onions in a few tablespoons olive oil for 20 minutes or so if you have time to carmelize before adding the kale.

The photos of the halibut are too dark to post but MAN was it ever good!

Serve with Drouhin Chablis—it was so awesome I even found myself writing notes so I could have this impromptu meal again!
