Could bring a 2001 Domaine Faiveley Corton “Clos des Corton”. Jonathan, I could also bring a second bottle, which would be a 1987 Peter Lauer Sekt Reserve for your friends who like Riesling and for your love of champagne—I am a big fan of the producer and his aged (but recently disgorged) sparklers,...
