*Romanée-Conti 1858 with… “Chat flanqué de Rats”
Who could resist a Christmas Day lunch of elephant, kangaroo, cats and rats (yuk), and antelope with Latour (sic) Blanche 1861 (a good Sauternes vintage), Palmer 1864 (one of the great vintages of the 19th century), Mouton Rothschild 1849 (average), and Romanée-Conti 1858 (good)?

Here’s a great image from Richard Holmes’ history of ballooning Falling Upwards: How we Took to the Air.
This menu from the Café Voisin, dated 25th December 1870 – the 99th day of the siege of Paris during the Franco-Prussian War –
has a desperate offering of dishes with a fabulous selection of fine wines.
Speaking of desperate meats…
Bats might be a delicacy in Wuhan but they are a protected species in the UK. Probably better not to eat them – even if the accompanying wine is nice.
Stay safe, well, and healthy
