With Simon Hopkinson's creamy chicken and mushroom pie with buttery cabbage, the stars of a succession of magnums were two completely glorious vintages of the cult Châteauneuf-du-Pape Château Rayas. The 1989 is particularly celebrated, along with the 1990, but the 1998 was looking even better at that west London dinner table. My predecessor as FT wine correspondent Edmund Penning-Rowsell always said that once you’ve decided to pull a cork, you should banish any thought of how much the wine costs. Thank goodness the friend who so kindly donated these magnums follows his advice.
