Le Gourmet TV and
the Chilean Wine Festival present 3 new videos on Chilean wine
Le Gourmet TV has posted three new videos on Chilean wine that were filmed during the Chilean Wine Festival held in October in Toronto.
To see them, go to:www.legourmet.tv and click on “Wine” from the menu bar on the left hand side. There you’ll see:
“Botalcura Winery Chile,” in which winemaker Philippe DeBrus discusses the advantages of working in Chile. Born of a French winemaking family, he enjoys the freedom of working in a country that does not bind a winemaker’s hand with strict rules about blending varietals. Chile is a market-driven country, he says, which means the winemaker can “play with new varieties” to find exciting new styles of wines.
In “Chile and Carmenère Grapes” the discussion revolves around the history of Carmenere, Chile’s “showcase grape,” and the overall great value of Chilean wine, which “overdelivers in every category,” and the outstanding “historic vintage” 2007.
In the third video “Santa Carolina Winery Chile,” export manager Fernando Vargas discusses Carmenere, the “lost grape of Bordeaux” as the hot new wine for consumers looking for some excitement in their efforts to to break away from Cabernet and Chardonnay.
