(Il est illégal de recevoir le vin par cette manière dans mon état du Maryland--Par conséquent, je dois refuser votre offre aimable).
I will look for the Mas Amiel at our local stores.
OK--My next guess:
1/ Apéritif--The Champagne
2/ Gaspacho--The Rose
3/ Aiguillettes de dinde aux citrons et asperges vertes--the C de B
4/ Fromages--the Puligny Montrachet
-Cramble abricot pommes amandes
-Cerises de l'arbre...
Avec les desserts, toute l'autres.
You won! But with just one mistake.
The cheese was a "Citeaux" (I did not tell you...) and the C.B. matched well with it, believe me!
And the Puligny Montrachet 1° cru???
As always or often in Burgundy for APERITIF!
Some white wines "live" by themselves so why eat something with them? It's no necessary.
Another example, we frequently drink "Montrachet" for apéritif, or just with a piece of Comté, that's all. You know, when you see "a lord", you have to honor him and in general great wine are very "egoïst". You can extend this for a lot of white wines 1° cru.
But I am sure you do that too in USA. If it's the case, you are right.
Bravo for you and ArieS, he was close too!
