EMC Club At Fenway With Loire Valley Wines
When Loire Valley Wines come to town they sure know how to pick a venue to host their event: the EMC Club at Fenway Park! Although it was a rainy day we still had the best vantage point ever to check out all the refurbishments, including that new HD Screen (which is a bit smaller than we thought it would be) as we sipped wines and snacked on appetizers. It was the perfect way to warm up for Red Sox Opening Day.
Some of our favorite wines were the Sauvion Rosé dÁnjou 2009 from W.J. Deutsch & Sons, the very herbal, grassy undertones of the Domaine Fournier Sancerre Cuvée Silex 2008 from David Milligan Selections and the Domaine Lavigne Saumur-Champigny 2009 from Cynthia Hurley French Wines. We also visited with our very good friends from Pasternak Wine Imports, who featured three of the Guy Saget wines we featured in our blog post last year on our lunch with Arnaud Saget at Market by Jean-Georges at the W Boston.
