Neighbors for Cardinal de Richelieu?

Next year I'm planting Cardinal de Richelieu (grafted on multiflora). I have absolutely NO IDEA what I'm doing, never having grown any type of old rose. So this is the beginning of a new adventure for me and I'm very excited.

I need some inspiration for which roses would make good neighbors.

I have a couple of Austins (Graham Thomas & Grace) that need to move and will probably end up nearby, but aside from those I'm looking forward to focusing on antique varieties. This is a wide open newly planted area and essentially I'm designing around the Cardinal. This garden will get full sun and the soil is composted loam. I want to avoid anything that will need significant winter protection.

Please be freely descriptive with your suggestions, as I have so much to learn.
