krug champagne nv (special cuvee) food pairing for our anniversary

About 3 years ago we were given a bottle of Krug NV (special cuvee) as a gift. We have kept it in our cool cellar on its side since then.
Though we drink a lot of good wine this is definitely a special bottle, retailing about 5 times more than I would spend nornally for a special bottle.

So we want to get the most out of it.

We are not over fond of very old whites so we don't want to risk over ageing it till it looses its freshness...
Do we need to be drinking it any time soon....?

One opportunity would be our wedding anniversary at the end of July (16 candles). ...Or can we/ should we/ hold off until the 20th....?

What would be appropriate food pairings? thinking fish....but open to suggestions....the wine should take center-stage....

Thank you for your advice...
