Since I was meeting a French wine girl (Miss Vicky) from Beaujolais country last Friday and Jean Luc Le Du of Le Du Wines had Jasmine Hirsch of Hirsch Vineyards pouring a couple of Sonoma Pinot Noirs including the Le Du creation, I offered that we visit Jean Luc shop.
We did not let the icy winds stop us.
As a side benefit of paying Jean Luc and Jasmine a visit, I was reminded that Jean-Luc and David Waltuck of famed and now closed NY restaurant Chanterelle are toasting the almost end of the year with a Champagne and Canapes (and a bit more) Evening on Tuesday, December 22, 2009 at City Winery.
The Event Card (below) says it all.
I will not be there but I suggest you do.
Make a toast for me!
