Sommelier’s tip

 A young Petit Chablis 

One can taste a lovely bitterness and umami through the whole grilled squid and the cooked rape flowers. This dish would go very well with a young, light wine, such as a Petit Chablis. The shiso leaves bring a fresh taste to the dish which also complements the wine.
