Burgundy Wine Pairings for Classic Hong Kong Dishes

Hong Kong is known for its diverse and delicious cuisine, from dim sum to roasted meats to seafood. To elevate your dining experience, consider pairing your favorite Hong Kong dishes with Burgundy wines. Here are some specific recommendations for Burgundy wine pairings with classic Hong Kong dishes:

Har Gow (Shrimp Dumplings) and Chablis Har gow, or shrimp dumplings, are a classic dim sum dish that pairs well with a crisp, mineral Chablis. The Chardonnay grape used in Chablis produces a wine with high acidity and flinty minerality, which complements the sweetness and brininess of the shrimp.

Roast Goose and Pinot Noir Roast goose is a popular dish in Hong Kong, often served during special occasions or holidays. The rich, gamey flavor of the goose pairs well with a medium-bodied Pinot Noir from Burgundy. Look for wines from the Cote de Nuits region, which produce Pinot Noirs with bold cherry and earthy flavors.

Steamed Fish with Ginger and Scallions and Meursault Steamed fish with ginger and scallions is a classic Cantonese dish that is light and flavorful. For a wine pairing, try a rich and creamy Meursault from Burgundy. The buttery texture and nutty flavors of the wine will complement the delicate flavors of the fish and ginger.

Char Siu (Barbecued Pork) and Beaujolais Char siu, or barbecued pork, is a beloved dish in Hong Kong that is sweet and savory. Pair it with a fruity and aromatic Beaujolais from Burgundy. The Gamay grape used in Beaujolais produces a wine with bright, juicy flavors that complement the sweetness of the char siu.

By pairing Burgundy wines with classic Hong Kong dishes, you can elevate your dining experience and bring out the best flavors in both the food and wine. Visit HK Butler's e-commerce shop to find the perfect Burgundy wine for your next meal. Cheers to pairing perfection!
