Well, with this menu a magnum of Champagne is a must. I would then select the Spanish or Italian with the venison or duck breast with the Burgundy.

'98 Oregon Pinots, for the most part, are not ready especially in magnum, IMO. I'd go with the Mugneret, Muga or Pahlmeyer. A 1995 red might be fun to try after a '95 Bonneau Corton Charlemagne mag... Wink

The better 1998 OR PNs are very special. I think they're ready but sure to hold for a while. I think 1998 and 2002 are the best vintages I've tried.


Just one more sip.
