Food and Wine Pairing Dilemma [moved from Manhattan board]
Obviously, if this is your only bottle of this wine, it's quite young. On the other hand, if you have several bottles (or would buy more if you find this one interesting), then opening it makes more sense. 2005 is shaping up as potentially a landmark vintage so trying a bottle or two early isn't such a bad idea really, if you intend on buying more.
What to pair it with? Epoisses is a must, IMO, this is such a wonderful wine & cheese pairing. Duck, Grilled oilier fish, game birds of all sort, roast pork, turkey, eggs, mushrooms in general, truffle in particular, are all very nice matches.
