Apple Caulifower puree, prosciuto garni

Cheese ravioli with butter sage

Talipia with lemon bure blanc, sautted spinach or green beans

Short bread or pound cake with macerated fruit

Wine

J Cuvee 20 Brut NV

Roederer Estate Brut Rose

Gary, no offense intended. This does not seem like a normal kind of problem. This seems very staged and like you're trying to set us a puzzle that isn't really important to you (hence, not important to us).

Nah, I don't think Gary does that.

So here's my answer:

Food's in good order. The wines are almost right, but I'd move the rose (which will probably have more of a sweet impression, even though it's dry) to the first position with the cheeses, as an 'opener'. Otherwise, looks good.

Taking Gary at your word... The key thing is to find what goes with the butter sage sauce. Oh, and to replace the Veuve Clicquot, because it's awful.

I would exchange wines 1 and 2, and then exchange wines 3 and 4. Exchange wine 5 for a good coffee.

I agree with Jeff on this - you'd be drinking an advertising campaign. There are plenty of smaller growers making their own champagne that is much better. (Mailly, Robert Moncuit and Montaudon for example.)
I just wanted to inform you that I find you to be very attractive. Thank you and have a nice day.
