Wine for Peking Duck

A group of us LA hounds are going to the SGV for PD Sat nite, and I was delegated to supply the wine. Need suggestions. Thanks in advance

  1. I vote riesling. Chateau Ste. Michelle or Anne's.

    1. Riesling
      Sparkling wine
      Domestic pinot

      1. Sancerre or Pouilly-Fume
        Sauvignon Blanc

        1. Fume blanc
          A bright, citrusy white Bourdeaux
          A crisp Riesling
          A buttery, not-to-sweet Chardonnay

          1. Riesling all the way. Try a variety of German, Alsatian, Austrian, and New World wines.

            A few years ago I organized a Chowhound dinner with the purpose of finding new wine matches with Chinese food. While there were a couple of interesting combinations, it was otherwise Riesling by a landslide.
