A new internet tv channel dedicated to wine and beer

Posted by Quentin4, Sep 1, 2009.

"Bottoms up" has just been created on Active Channel Internet TV platform and is dedicated to the world of wines, beers and probably at a later stage, spirits.
So if you have a few minutes to spare, you can tune in to :

On this episode, I was asked a few brief questions of Asia's wine trade and presented a great wine from Chateauneuf-du-Pape that I strongly recommend. I think they are just beeing distributed in some part of the States, Europe and for now Singapore.

Cheers!

Congrats, Quentin, on your exposure via that channel.

What was the Chateau Neuf du Pape, again? Was a little bit hard to grasp as the camera swung by the label...

So how do you like the Font du Loup, Pascal?

Quentin, you presented yourself very well on the show, but I'm wondering if the format of that program is conducive to tasting details about wine? I would've loved to hear/see more about the wine itself....

Never tasted that Font du Loup...
As far as Quentin is a french guy, I understand him very well when he speaks english ;-))

Funny!

Congrats Quentin.

I'll take a more in-depth look later but seems very promising!

thank you all for your objective views and kind words on the show. I agree that it should be more about the wine, but they are working on it for future interviews.
As for the CDP, it is indeed Chateau de la Font du Loup. They are great people behind this wine, with Anne-Charlotte (daughter of Mr. Melia) and Laurent her husband whom is charge of the production. They do an excellent work and are still under rated, which is a good thing for prices :)
I recommend their straight CDP cuvee Font du Loup.
They also have an excellent 100% grenache from vines that are over 100 years old! The cuvee is called the Puy Rolland and should be fully organic next year.
And I strongly recommend their white CDP. The 2007 vintage (I have added the tasting notes on Snooth recently) is very well done. They blend four grapes, two are fermented in stainless steal vats, 2 are fermented in Chateau d'Yquem 2eme vin to give the wine extra roundness and softness. And for the price, it is a real jewel!
Cheers

Quentin
