2007 Maybach Materium and, if I have it in me (I'm also going to a beer bar in the evening for a flight of imperial stouts), a Kracher dessert wine.

I was thinking of one of these, but it seems a waste to just enjoy them alone as the 15 year old is not there yet.
I’m making lamb chops for dinner.

Group that likes wine but are not wine geeks:

Bereche Champagne
Either 2004 Talbot or 2004 Sociando Mallet and/or some other Bordeaux
2001 Ridge Home Ranch
a German Kabinett or Spatlese
Something sweet.

Happy NYE to all (almost).

Will start the evening with a pour of 1970s vintage Four Roses Bourbon.

Then we're going with a 2017 Far Niente Chard with Alaskan King Crab Legs w/melted butter.

Main course wine will be 2013 Opus One with Roasted Beef Tenderloin and crispy duck fat potatoes.

Dessert is going to be 06 Chateau D'Yquem.

I'm sure the wife will have some bubbly open but not sure what yet.

Forgot to ask the OP, and slight thread drift, but what makes the rack of lamb "Genghis Khan"? Love a nice rack of lamb and have to admire ole Ghengis carving out his place in history, whether you liked his politics or not, so this dish is intriguing to me.

Curious here, too.

Perhaps, lamb was pillaged, raped and then slaughtered?

Always looking for a new Rack of Lamb rub/marinade/grill technique. Usually one of the more successful and quick options...and I love tossing the bones over my shoulder.

I had the 1968 Sebastiani earlier this year as part of a 1968 horizontal celebrating several friends’ 50th birthdays (including Mike Grammer), and it was showing fairly well and had at least a few more years of life left in it.

Recipe Type: Dinner
Cuisine: Spicy Lamb
Author: Chef Marcus Haight
Prep time: 48 hours
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 48 hours 20 mins
Serves: 6
A recipe developed by Chef Marcus Haight during his tenure as Executive Chef at The Lark Restaurant in West Bloomfield, Michigan for 17 years. He has held leadership positions at four of the 15 Mobil Guide Five-Star restaurants in the US. This includes the Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV, La Maisonette in Cincinnati, OH, Le Francais in Wheeling, IL and Le Bec Fin in Philadelphia, PA.
Ingredients
1 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons lemon juice
½ cup honey
3 tablespoons curry powder
1-1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons Coleman’s mustard powder
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 tablespoons salt
1 cup water
3 lamb racks (8 ribs each), trimmed
1 cup hoisin sauce
Instructions
To make the marinade, combine the first ten ingredients. Place in a plastic bag with the lamb and marinate in the refrigerator for 48 hours.
Remove the lamb from the marinade, place in a shallow roasting pan and let stand at room temperature.
Heat oven to 450 degrees.
Roast for 15 to 25 minutes, depending on the size, or to 120 degrees for rare lamb. The hoisin sauce is brushed on during the last 5 minutes of roasting.

That's our plan as well. Too much work travel in December plus a holiday trip has wiped out my immune system, then we had sick kids at the family Xmas. Our household will be celebrating by popping a fresh box of Kleenex.

Not totally sure yet, but it better be good as we start 1-2 months of a ketogenic diet starting on January 1. Considering a '73 Dom and perhaps a bottle of '86 Rausan Segla, which has been showing beautifully.

We have a 'pot luck' sparkling tasting, this year at a friend's house.

We tie string and a balloon to each bottle, then set them to sink/float in the pool with the strings intermingling so we don't know which string goes to which bottle.

When it's time for a new bottle, whoever pulls the string has to drink the first glass, so we include some Cook's and Riunite as spoilers. [diablo.gif]

We are taking a Bollinger Gran Annee 1979, a 1992 Dom, a new release Moet "Imperial" for comparison, a couple of Ultramarines, and a mystery <10 dollar Champagne from Trader Joe's left over from New Year's Eve 1988 that we've kept around for no particular reason.

The temperature is looking good, we had to chip away an ice film on the pool this past weekend.

I'm dipping "Litl Smokies" in cornbread batter and baking mini corn dogs champagne.gif as one snack, some cliche bacon wrapped scallops, and a batch of pine needle cooked mussels.

The Lark was a very high end restaurant for 20 plus years. Each rack came with a numbered card.

Best rack I ever tasted - google it a website has the recipe. http://hopfood.com/rack-of-lamb-genghis-khan/

The Lark was a very high end restaurant for 20 plus years. Each rack came with a numbered card.

Best rack I ever tasted - google it a website has the recipe. http://hopfood.com/rack-of-lamb-genghis-khan/
Based on the history of the dish, shouldn't it actually be mutton?

Nice!

I have a '74 Lafleur Petrus, and, as a back-up, a 2000 Tertre, to go with some lamb (hold the Ghenghis Khan). But as we are travelling today, our NYE may be tomorrow night or even Wed., as we are also recovering from our NYC revels.
