1966 and all that - planning some serious celebrations
5 Sep 2006 by JR
Charles Mason, London SW6:   I am keen to seek the advice of yourself and other purple pagers to plan a 40th birthday dinner later this year.  I bought some 1966 and 1996 Cheval Blanc ('66 for obvious reasons, ‘96 as it was a vintage I could afford and it was also the year of our wedding).  I need some suggestions for champagne and white wine.  Years I would like to commemorate are 1990, 1995 (got engaged, perhaps champagne from this vintage) and 1998 (first child born - what good whites are available?).  Any advice and food suggestions for the Cheval Blanc gratefully received. ...
