Good Day Chicago segment with Rowan Jacobsen and William Fevre

Rowan describes the steps of shucking a oyster, first by wiggling your shucking knife into the hinge of the
oyster before you pop open the shell. Once you’ve done that, you slice the top shell off the oyster, then
underneath and down the hatch. Rowen then says, “Follow it up with a little Chablis and you’ve had a
good moment.”

“This is an oyster shucking knife with a very thin, very strong blade provided to us by William Fèvre
Chablis. It is actually the perfect design.”

Oysters & Chablis Hosted By William Févre Chablis

Stephanie Maida

Add shucking an oyster—and pairing it—to your repertoire of gastronomic life skills. Oyster guru Rowan
Jacobsen, author of The Essential Oyster: A Salty Appreciation of Taste and Temptation, and William
Fèvre Chablis hosted a hands-on demonstration on how to expertly shuck an oyster and pair it with the
best wine at Catch NYC. Chablis, which comes from soil that gets its minerality from ancient oyster
fossils, is an ideal pairing.

Fun facts Rowan shared:

-The first oyster bar potentially opened 164,000 years ago. In caves in South Africa, archaeologists
discovered oyster shells and prehistoric bone knives—evidence of a prehistoric oyster bar.

-Choose oysters that are heavy for their size just as you would fruit – the shells should be tightly clamped.

-As for pairing, a good entry-level Chablis like William Fèvre Champs Royaux will be the most friendly
with all types of oysters. Refreshing, crisp, and mineral driven, this wine is perfect for warm weather

Minerality + freshness: You couldn’t come up with a better formula for an oyster companion. Rowan
presented an array of four types of oysters from both the East and West Coast. He paired each oyster to
a William Fèvre wine matching the body and flavor characteristics of the wine to the oyster.

Rowan started by pairing the 2015 William Fèvre Chablis Champs Royaux with the Fat Bastard oyster
(West Coast) “terrible name, but a great oyster,” he adds. The slightly creamier quality of the 2015 William
Fèvre Chablis Domaine made a great match for the fruitier Kumamoto oyster (West Coast). The Totten
Inlet oyster (West Coast), the richest and fattiest of the three oysters, was a natural pairing for the 2014
William Fèvre Chablis Premier Cru Montmains Domaine, according to Rowan. For the grand finale,
Rowan paired the 2012 William Fèvre Grand Cru Bougros Côte Bouguerots Domaine with the Island
Creek oyster (East Coast), both of very high quality. Guests went home with an oyster shucking glove in

which to hold their oyster, a William Fèvre shucking knife, and most importantly, plenty of oyster shucking

Never shucked an oyster? Read this

Robin Shreeves

"I thought you and your readers may enjoy adding how to shuck an oyster — and pair it — to your repertoire
of gastronomic life skills," the email in my inbox read.

I'm not sure how someone knew I was a virgin oyster shucker, but I was. Always up for learning something
new, I gave the go-ahead for fresh oysters and a bottle of Chablis to be sent to my home. The wine showed
up first, along with a cut-resistant glove — which I would later discover is very important — and a special
knife to make the job of opening the stubborn oysters a little easier.

A few days later, the oysters arrived. That evening, I took the shellfish and wine to a pool party. When it
came time to open the oysters, my friends looked to me to see if I'd be up to the task. I saw some doubt,
which made me extra determined to get this right. (It also made me realize that perhaps I should first watch
the video I'd been sent about how to open an oyster, so I did.) I took a few sips of the Chablis and got to

It's a good thing I watched that video. Opening an oyster is work, but once you get the hang of it, there's a
great sense of accomplishment that you've learned this gastronomic life skill.

Tips for first-time oyster shuckers

Based on my experience, I advise not going into your first oyster shucking experience unprepared. You
may think that if you've watched the shucker at an oyster bar open them up, you know what to do. The
shucker makes it look easy, but remember, he's very practiced.

1. Research first. Read some instructions or watch a video like the one below. Or both.

I like this video because it's thorough and emphasizes the importance of wearing the cut-resistant gloves.
However, I didn't find getting into the end of the oyster as easy as this video made it look.

2. Have the right tools. An oyster knife is specially designed to get into an oyster shell and open it up. A
regular knife is not and could be more dangerous. Even with the correct knife, there's still a danger of it
slipping while you're applying pressure. When it slips, you'll want a cut-resistant glove or that knife will go
right into your palm.

3. Be prepared for a mess. Not only is there an oyster inside that shell, there's also salty seawater. The
trick is to keep most of the liquid in the shell along with the oyster, but some of it will spill out. Place an old
towel under your workspace to soak up the liquid, just in case.

4. Hold the bowl of the oyster in your palm. The rounded part of the mussel needs to be in your palm
and the flat part should be on top. That way the oyster stays in the round part (it acts like a little cup) with
its liquid.

5. Start at the narrow end and use your muscles. On most oysters, there's a rounded end and a more
narrow end. Start at the narrow end and work the oyster knife into the shell to separate the two parts of the
shell. It can take some muscle to get in there. The first thing I did, once I got the hang of it, was to place the
tip of the knife on that spot and push as hard as I could. Then, if the shell didn't give, I would move my wrist
left to right, wriggling the knife into the shell while continuing to apply as much pressure I could. As I did
this the knife would sometimes slip, and I was grateful for my protective glove.

(Note: There are oyster knives that have a pick-like end of the blade that may get into the shell more quickly,
but I'm wondering if those knives are more dangerous? Seems like that end could easily pierce through a
protective glove.)

6. Slide the knife along the inside of the flat side of the shell. Once you get the knife into the end of the
shell, sliding it all around the edge to separate the two halves is easy. Make sure your blade is touching the
top of the flat side of the shell so you separate the flesh of the oyster.

7. Pop the top off. And congratulate yourself for your accomplishment the first time you do it.
8. Run the blade along the bowl of the bottom half. This will dislodge the oyster to make it easy to slurp up
when eating it.
9. Put on ice. If you're not going to immediately consume your open oysters, put them on ice to keep them
cold. (We consumed the ones I shucked immediately, so we didn't need the ice.)

10. Choose a wine to pair with it. Chablis is a great choice, so is a dry sparkling wine. (If you'd like to pair
your raw oysters with beer, you can't go wrong with an oyster stout or a dry Irish stout, like Guinness.)

Oysters and Chablis

I was sent Kumamoto oysters from Taylor Shellfish
Farms. These oysters were farmed in Washington state
and are small, plump and very briny. Taylor's oysters are
considered "best choices" according to Monterey Bay
Aquarium’s Seafood Watch.

The wine sent was William Fèvre Chablis Champs
Royaux, a 100 percent chardonnay wine from the Chablis
region of France. According to Rowan Jacobsen, author
of the recently released "The Essential Oyster," the soils
of Chablis are "pock marked with fossilized seashells,
long ago sealing the fate of the perfect marriage of
Chablis and oysters."

The minerals from the seashells in the soil make their way
through the roots of the vines and into the fruit, eventually
coming out subtly in the wine. Jacobsen notes that the
entry-level Fèvre Chablis Champs Royaux is sourced
from "all over the Chablis region and will the most friendly

to all types of oysters."

William Fèvre organically farms all of its vineyards, although it is not certified, which isn't uncommon at
many long-established European wineries. I understand this. Why jump through the bureaucratic hoops
plus spend money for certification when you've been doing things the right way all along? The winery as a
whole does hold the "High Environmental Value" certification, the highest level that can be earned in the
French sustainability program.

What did I think of the pairing? Watch and find out.

It is, indeed, a great pairing. My friend in the video is Dana, whose home I raved about when I wrote about
scruffy hospitality. We're in her very welcoming kitchen, and as you can see from the makeshift wine bucket
in the photo above, it's more important to be together than to be perfect — even when you're eating freshly
shucked oysters and drinking French wine.

2015 William Fèvre Chablis Champs Royaux

Kovas Palubinskas

Descended from a family which had lived in the Chablis region for over 250 years, William Fèvre set up as
a winemaker with 7 hectares of vineyards in 1959. The domain has expanded in the Chablis region to 78
hectares of vineyards, of which 15.9 hectares are Premiers Crus and 15.2 hectares are Grand Crus. The
domain pays attention to environmental concerns and the vines have been cultivated using organic
methods for many years. 2015 was considered a fantastic year, with exceptional weather conditions
delivering exceptional wines.

While the classic pairing for Chablis is oysters, I'm allergic to all seafood, so we had to get creative with our
pairing. We decided on a simple recipe for Chicken Francese over pasta, a definite winner with the lemon
and herbs in the recipe playing off the citrus and floral notes in the wine.

Tasting Notes:
Chablis Champs Royaux 2015 Burgundy France: Chardonnay; aged for 8-10 months in 5- to 6-year-old
barrels; pale gold in color; citrus, white stone fruit, and floral aromas; more of the same on the palate along
with some saline and minerality; pleasant mouthfeel with great acidity with a long, subtly oaky finish; cork
closure; (SRP $25).

Looking for a Wine to Pair With Oysters? Try Chablis

Dan Myers

This French white wine is a perfect partner for briny oysters

There’s something about the warm evenings of summer that makes us want to sit outside and slurp down
a chilled platter of oysters. A chilled glass of white wine is the ideal counterpart for any type of shellfish
(especially oysters), but choosing the right one can be tricky. We suggest you try pairing them with Chablis.

Chablis is the northernmost winegrowing region of Burgundy, pretty close to the Champagne region, and
this cooler climate leads to more natural acidity in the grapes that grow there (which are nearly 100 percent
chardonnay). The soil of the region is mineral-rich and actually contains marine fossils (like oyster shells!),
and the wines are usually made with very little oak, letting the natural flavor of the chardonnay shine
through. The end result is a wine that’s complex, dry, and high in minerality, and (in our opinion) perfect for

If you’re looking for a good Chablis to pair with your oysters (especially if you’re shucking them at home;
you can learn how to shuck an oyster the right way here), we suggest you try William Fèvre Chablis; bottles
average just $25. And for America’s 25 best oyster bars, click here.

#Food & #Wine Pairing: Chablis with Clams

Michelle Williams
There is an axiom in the wine and food pairing world: Champagne and oysters is the perfect pairing. I am
not about to dispute this truth, but I am going to expand it a bit. Pairing any white wine with oysters is not a
given; however, there is a white wine that can stand alongside all the oysters of the world, and that wine is
Rowan Jacobsen has written Oysters & Chablis: A Pairing Guide on behalf of William Fèvre. This book is
a no frills down guide on North American oysters, how to shuck and eat oysters, and the best wine pairings.
I found it to be a very informative resource.
“Of all the white wines Ive explored, only Chablis seems to work with all oysters. (And Champagne, of
course. Champagne goes with everything.) Its because of that distinctive seashell minerality. You sip the
wine, slurp the oyster, go back to the wine, and spiritually, you’ve never left the coast of the ancient Jurassic
sea.” Rowan Jacobsen, Oysters & Chablis.

The Wine: Keeping the oyster & Chablis pairing in mind, a good selection is William Fèvre’s Champs
Royaux. The grapes are sourced throughout the Chablis region, are friendly to most types of oysters, and
meant to be enjoyed in its youth. Since 1959, Domaine William Fèvre works passionately to express
Chablis’ terroirs by respecting the regions environment and traditional practices. William Fèvre has become
one of the biggest land owners in Chablis with 78 hectares of prestigious vineyards, of which 15.9 are
classified as Premiers Crus and 15.2 as Grand Crus.

2015 William Fèvre Chablis Champs Royaux Burgundy France ($25): pale gold with lemon hues in the
glass; medium aromas of fresh picked citrus, green apples, white stone fruit, white floral notes, and flinty
minerality and crushed stone; dry with racy high acidity, fresh and elegant with a pleasant richness that lies
on a firm bed of minerality, its energetic with a long finish that puckers the palate, leaving the mouth begging
for another sip, my husband and I loved this wine, drank the entire bottle at dinner (unusual for us on a
weeknight), I would gladly order more of this for future consumption; good news, this affordable Chablis is
widely distributed, click here to locate this wine.
The Food: After explaining to you the beauty of the Chablis and oyster pairing, we hit a snag. The wonderful
people at William Fèvre with the assistance of Gregory White PR had arranged for me to receive a dozen
Pacific oysters from Taylor Shellfish Farms and a bottle of the Chablis. However, apparently Texas, a state
that prides itself on capitalism and the free market, does not allow oysters to be shipped into the state from
Washington (and other west and east coast states). Thankfully they had a Plan B, and what a delicious
plan b it was…clams!

My Choice: I was disappointed to not experience the Chablis and oyster pairing this time, but was delighted
to receive three pounds of fresh Manila Clams overnighted and packed in dry ice, directly from Puget Sound.
The clams were beautiful. One thing I love about cooking clams is with a little prep a fast, easy, and delicious
dinner can be on the table faster than the McDonald’s drive-thru. I chose a Red Curry, Coconut, and Ginger
Infused Steamed Clams recipe along with Grilled Bok Choy “Wedge” with Blue Cheese- Buttermilk

The Results: Winner Winner Chablis and clam dinner! The clams were delicious. It was a good recipe,
slightly creamy and sweet with a mild kick on the back of the palate. The bok choy was also really good.
The grilling brought out its earthiness and the faux buttermilk dressing with blue cheese added a tanginess.
All the flavors of a wedge without all the guilt so you can save your splurge for another meal. As I already
said the wine was great, would gladly buy and drink again. It paired very well with the meal but I must
confess I am still hungry for the oysters. To be continued….

Lovely White– William Févre Champs Royaux 2015

Barbara Payne

Chablis. Remember how that was practically the only white wine we knew of back in the 70s? I always
liked Chablis; didn’t know or care at the time that it was made with Chardonnay grapes – and still is today.
So it came as a surprise to me that I didn’t like the original heavily oaked Chardonnay wines that came
from those same grapes. Happily these days, the oaking craze has settled down quite a bit.

To my further surprise, years ago when I was searching out a white burgundy, a favorite of mine, I finally
realized many of those bottles were labeled Chablis – and learned that the Chardonnay grapes used to
make them are grown in Burgundy. For a good discussion of this slightly confusing situation, read Eric
Asimov of the New York Times on Chablis.

William Fèvre is known for producing exceptional Chablis wines that are excellent expressions of the
ideal growing conditions in their Grands Crus terroirs. In this Champs Royaux 2015 you’ll taste the
minerality of the sea and the chalky soils typical of the area – which makes it a perfect pairing with
oysters. Winemakers notes: Fresh bouquet of citrus and white fruits, very slight oak finish, fresh and

Some experts claim Chablis is the only wine that pairs perfectly with oysters. I’m not going to argue with
that or the recommendation of consuming oysters, grilled fish or sushi with this one. But I also think it has
enough structure to stand up to roast pork with a light sauce or even a creamy beef Stroganoff. It’s a
white wine with backbone, like some white burgundies I’ve had. At $25 a bottle, you can be proud to
present this as a host/ess gift or just as a treat for yourself.

A Perfect Oyster Pairing: William Fèvre Chablis

Sara Lehman

Happy National Oyster Day! Oysters are a summer staple and one
of my favorites when enjoying the warm weather. There’s nothing
better than a briny, salty, meaty oyster paired with a crisp and
refreshing glass of Chablis.

I recently received a delicious shipment from Taylor Shellfish
Farms of Kumamoto and Shigoku Oysters with a bottle of 2015
William Fèvre Chablis Champs Royaux. Once I was done
shucking them all, I decided to do something a bit different and
bake them. Many times when enjoying oysters, I consume them
raw, however I was in the mood for something delicious and baked
and it was a wonderful pairing.

In collaboration with Rowan Jacobsen, author of The Essential
Oyster: A Salty Appreciation of Taste and Temptation. Jacobsen
was able to offer some guidance with easy steps to expertly shuck
an oyster and pair it.

First, The R rule: Jacobsen dispels the still-thriving myth that
oysters should be eaten only in months with Rs in them
(September–April), which only applied in the pre-refrigeration days when all oyster were wild. The season
was closed in summer so that oysters could reproduce, and so they wouldn’t rot in the sun on hot docks.
Today, oysters are farmed and are kept refrigerated from the moment they are pulled out of the water. You
can eat them year-round.

The first oyster bar potentially opened 164,000 years ago. In caves in South Africa, archeologists
discovered oyster shells and prehistoric bone knives—evidence of a prehistoric oyster bar.
Choose oysters that are heavy for their size just as you would fruit – the shells should be tightly clamped.
As for pairing, a good entry–level Chablis like William Fèvre Champs Royaux will be the most friendly with
all types of oysters. Refreshing, crisp, and mineral driven, this wine is perfect for warm weather drinking.

Want to see an oyster demonstration for yourself? I can send you a video of oyster expert Rowan Jacobsen
in action and arrange an interview

Minerality + freshness: You couldn’t come up with a better
formula for an oyster companion. Rowan recently recommended
an array of four types of oysters from both the East and West
Coast with the wine that pairs best with the widest array of
oysters- William Fèvre Chablis. He paired each oyster to a
William Fèvre wine matching the body and flavor characteristics
of the wine to the oyster.

Now, for those of you who are wondering what Chablis is, and
why you should enjoy it with oysters, keep reading. Chablis is a
region in the northernmost wine area of the Burgundy region in
France. The cooler climate of this region produces wines with
more acidity and flavors that are less fruity than Chardonnay
wines grown in warmer climates. Chablis is mineral driven, citrus
powered, and absolutely stunning with seafood.

When I paired my William Fèvre with Baked Oysters, it was a
lovely match. I used tempura bread crumbs instead of regular
bread crumbs to create a lightness that did not overpower the
beauty of the oyster. I simply mixed some butter, garlic, and
scallions with the tempura crumbs, then added a bit of parmesan
cheese, salt and pepper. I mixed it all together and topped each oyster with the breading mixture. 15-20
minutes later in the oven, and viola!

Due to the acidity, freshness, and crispness of the wine, it paired beautifully with the lightly breaded baked
oysters. If you’re seeking a fun summer pairing, I also recommend this wine 2015 William Fèvre Chablis
Champs Royaux ($25) with grilled oysters!

Always remember, eat what you like and drink what you love… please pair responsibly!

A Guide to Oysters and Pairing with Chablis

Stef Schwalb

Everybody knows seafood is the go-to gourmet cuisine for summer.
Oysters are popular options to indulge in, and their distinct taste
demands an accessible and equally satisfying wine to pair with them.
According to Rowan Jacobsen, America’s go-to expert on oysters
and the author of A Geography of Oysters: The Connoisseur’s Guide
to Oyster Eating in North America and The Essential Oyster: A Salty
Appreciation of Taste and Temptation, that’s where Chablis comes
in. Although there are numerous wines that match well with certain
types of oysters, he says only Chablis has the ability to pair well with
all of them.

According to Jacobsen, oysters are similar to wine in several ways.
For one, just as wine comes in different varietals, oysters feature
different species. Second, while wine is greatly influenced by terroir (the natural environment it is produced
in), oysters are influenced by merroir (the local conditions in which seafood is raised). Lastly, both wine and
oysters are beloved for showcasing classic tastes and flavors on their own and paired together.

There are five species of oysters in North America, and their taste varies depending on if they originate
from warm water or cold. Oysters mirror the salinity of the water they grow in, and they are affected by
growing techniques. Each individual bay also features its own unique combination of minerals and plankton
that oysters feed on. Just as you would fruit, when selecting oysters Jacobsen recommends choosing those
that are heavy for their size – and the shells should be tightly clamped. Additionally, he believes shucking
is an experience you don’t want to miss out on.

“If you can shuck your own oysters, it’s really great. I think there is
a practical reason and a spiritual one. The practical reason is it
makes you the life of the party. You can say, ‘Come on over to my
house. Let’s have an oyster party. We’re going to open oysters and
drink some Chablis,’” enthuses Jacobsen. “The spiritual reason is
because I think it completes the experience. For at least 164,000
years human beings have shucked oysters. They probably didn’t
have good steel knives, but there are these caves in South Africa
that date back to 164,000 years ago. What the archeologists found
in the caves were shells, bones knives and a kind of chalk for
marking on bodies or shells. I know an oyster bar when I see one,
so basically oyster bars date back 164,000 years, which is as far
as we date back.” Shucking is also kind of like catching your own fish or picking your own mushrooms, he
adds, and when you start from the beginning and go through the experience, it reminds you of what it’s all

Once you finished shucking, Jacobsen recommends you slurp your oyster and follow up with Chablis. “The
chaser is key!,” he declares. What’s the chaser he recommends? Selections by William Fèvre since the
soils where this Chablis grows are rich in minerals and oyster fossils, which contribute to the wine’s ideal
pairing with oysters. The notes of citrus and white-fleshed fruits pair well with the salinity of the oysters and
the supple quality of the wine compliments the texture of the oysters. In particular, Jacobsen praises the
refreshing, crisp and mineral-driven William Fèvre Champs Royaux as a good entry-level wine that pairs
well for the summer season – and beyond.
