...there's really no hard and fast rule re pairing,just enjoy what matches best in your palate. Yes, noticed a high preference for claret in your imbibing,why not,especially with the selection that you have. I do tend to drink white wine with seafood,but ...

For instance I will enjoy a white with scallops even a quarter or half glass with the appetizer and then a glass of red with the main course.

A real gem. I think I have one or two bottles of 1999 in my cellar in Paris.

A very special wine. Like you i have no rules. I will be happy to have a red with fish and especially white wine with cheese region appropriate. Enjoy.

Thank you Bill. It’s funny your sushi post made me think -

I actually don’t generally drink wine with sushi. I love excellent sushi and even though I am not a beer drinker I do enjoy a Japanese beer with sushi. Just one. I just find the best raw fish so pure I don’t want to overpower it. Have a great weekend Bill... 

Am I invited? :))))

I will visit Paris as soon as it’s safe and if ever you find yourself in Toronto it would be my honour to be your host. Warmest regards,

Happy wife happy life?
