Wine pairing help for Lobster and/or King Crab Legs

I'm looking for some different options other than than a buttery chard to pair up with Lobster tails and/or King Crab Legs.

I might end up doing the Chard (as one of the wines atleast), but I thought I would ask what other people have paired up with Lobster and Crab that worked well.

I'm sort of looking for varietal advice and if one wants to toss in a region along with the varietal that would be great!

The only Rose option is the Pol Roger 1996 Rose. While I have had this and was pretty good, it wasn't ready IMO. This one needs more time. Our Rose Champagne options here are pretty much nil.

I believe I also could pick up the 1995 Pol Roger Champagne (non Rose).
Friday night (for our 3rd Anniversary) we had Mushroom capped escargo, king crab legs and lobster tails with fresh garden baby potatoes with butter and dill and fresh garden carrots. This evening turned out great other than I started to come down with a cold and could not taste everything 100%.

We ended up pairing it with a 1995 Pol Roger Reserve Champagne. What a great pairing!

Thanks all for your suggestions.
