Birthday dinner with 1979 La Mission Haut Brion - what to cook?

annamikemc | Jan 28, 201104:29 AM

Hi all, my husband's 32nd birthday is this weekend and I am surprising him with a bottle of 1979 La Mission Haut Brion. The WA review says it should still be good so fingers crossed! I am a little unsure of what to make for such an old wine. My normal Bordeaux dinner would be lamb/steak with maybe a risotto of some kind, but I know that a wine this old requires some extra attention. Anything to suggest, or possibly avoid?

Thank you!
