    Default match help in a hurry

    My actual birthday dinner having been postponed by kids with nasty
    stomach bugs, (Adele and I went out for a good sushi), we're making it
    up in more rustic fashion tonight at the farm. Pigeons and morels each
    procured, (pigeons are local but God knows where the morels come from),
    the plan is for aforementioned in Armagnac.

    Possible choices are pretty wide, if all French, and would maybe
    feature: 88/89 Clos du Lambrays (not sure which year is left), 90-ish
    Hermitage or maybe slightly older Cornas (I think there's some 85
    kicking about), some sort of CdP from the same period, 86 Beaucastel?
    Various Bordeaux, an 83 Figeac that might be nice now, or there's some
    '85 Clerc Milon whos time probably come.

    In short, not sure what direction to go in. Help!

    TIA

    -E

    I like older burgundy with pigeon but a well aged Bordeaux will
    probably work as well.

    Good choice. Pigeon and Burgundy is one of my all-time favorite
    combinations.

    Well, PIrhaps they do, but Bordeaux doesn't seem like such a bad
    choice.

    Maybe, but Burgundy seems to have that magical combination of elegance
    and wild flavours.

    I'm not a big drinker but burgundy does seem to have more flavor options. That is...much more flexible with a variety of dishes.

    Been out of town for a week, so too late for an official, but FWIW
    Burgundy for the Pigeon.
