The perfect wine:

Guigal’s Condrieu La Doriane is an intensely powerful, brilliantly clear wine with white flowers, apricot and peaches on the nose. Fully expressive of the terroir, it is rich and full-bodied with fleshy fruitiness and light acidity. It is a perfect foil for Chef Li Dong’s fried scallops with porcini and XO sauce.
