2007 Domaine Marin Pouilly-Fuisse: Pre-dinner drink and then later with crab

july 2011: this was a very tasty 2007 we had a glass of before dinner with grandmere on a sunday night in dinard. this white burgundy (chardonnay) was a bit round in terms of flavor, but it was definitely nowhere near as buttery as some californian varieties. (and i'm definitely not complaining!) we had it with live crab that my father boiled in lots of salt. the crab was wonderful and this pouilly-fuisse was fantastic with it. somehow the salt in the crab really enhanced the minor butter flavor in the wine, making both almost sweet. i think lobster boiled in very salty water would also make a good pairing with this pouilly-fuisse.
