#PeopleWhoMadeMy2015 & my Best Wishes for a Sparkling 2016!

Ian Purtel Restaurant Director and Sommelier
I am proud to name person of the year 2015 Ian Purtel for being such a sparkling Sommelier and a fantastic ambassador for Cellier Domesticus technology as well as Gabriel-Glas.

He is the director of the only 6 sommeliers team east of Canada and collaborates with the talented Chef Jean-Francois Methot. We first met in Decembre 2014 at his restaurant le Coureur des Bois Bistro Culinaire, with 13 000 bottles of the finest wines. It was logical for them to secure their wine cellar with Cellier Domesticus technology.
Of course you can find there any vintage of Petrus or exclusive Ruinart, but the finest wines are well paired with the food. Pairing wine and food is here done with excellence not only because of an impressive wine list and a fine selection of local food, but the complicity of Ian and Jean-Francois makes the sommelier team and the kitchen team work in true harmony. This melody ends in your plate and in your glass providing a unique experience. A good showcase of this talent is definitely last month  Banquet Ruinart


So in December 2015 he naturally helped me with a Champagne communication as Le Coureur des Bois is Ruinart Brand Ambassador.
We did quite well with more than 6000 views in a week with this tweet alone :


Ian and Robert Parker
I truly admire Ian for his professionalism and the way he can connect with the finest people in the wine world. His wine cellar is visited by the best winemakers of the world and even Robert Parker this year paid a visit! Ian is far from being snobbish and always wishes to please EVERY customer. I predict for him a great year 2016 and he will surely upgrade his Best of Award to a Grand Award from WineSpectator.
There are many amateurs in the wine business but,

Ian acts and plays like a Pro!

2015 was also marked by important people in my life of entrepreneur and for Cellier Domesticus :

Thank you Claudine and Stephen Bronfman for naming me Emerging Entrepreneur of the year in 2015, for my contribution to Quebec Economy.  My C2Montreal experience was unique from the preparation cocktail at SidLee with medias (video) to the C2MTL ending party drinking Champagne in the VIP corner. But most of all I was really overwhelmed by their generosity and how available they were for every of the 25 winners. For that I name them the most important contribution to my startup.

Two unforgettable moments were two private sessions with Chelsea Clinton and Rangu Salgame from Tata Communication. But even the first conference of David Rose about enchanted objects was also very inspiring right from the opening of #C2MTL.

The 24 emerging entrepreneurs, Chelsea Clinton, Claudine and Stephen Bronfman and ME!
Rangu Salgame from Tata Communication

Second year in a row I must thank La Fondation Montreal inc for it’s unconditional help & support.




Probably one of the most exciting Trip of the year was @BonAppetech for #33entrepreneurs startup contest in San Francisco. The #goodfoodinnovation conference was focusing on Food and Beverage industry. It was good food for the brain and an incredible insight on the future of wine industry. An inspiring moment and visiting Napa was also not bad 😉
We are in love with you California and the Bay. We’ll be back in 2016.



Here is the review of our viral tweeter sparkling campaign to close 2015:

Closson Chase Vineyards in PEC "la joie de vivre" façon Hospices

Let me share a secret about my favorite #wine #region for a weekend, only 4 hours from Montréal and less than 3 from Toronto!

One of the best emerging wineries are also located in one of the most beautiful country side of Canada  : Prince Edward County in Ontario

With a multitude of waterfronts and beautiful sunsets, you also have the chance to get the best fruits, vegetables or eggs directly from the farm. The list of local wineries is growing each year. Best of all, the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, in this climate moderate by the lake, have found a limestone soil with a great potential and characteristics.

Closson Chase Vineyards with it’s roof church inspired from Hospices de Beaune does not only offer a similar look, but the winemaking is also inspired by the best wines from Burgundy. Believe me, we were at Chorey les Beaune, true winlovers will find a peaceful scenery to enjoy wine with a very fine taste  » tout est de bon goût ». The CCV South Clos Chardonnay is really a very elegant wine, with I am sure a great potential of aging. I’ve rarely found in a Canadian white wine such a nice balance between oak and acidity. It is really worth getting a case and opening a few every year, this wine has potential and I am usually hard to change from my french origins and favours for Chablis or Meursault.

Closson Chase new Chardonnay vintage kickoff private party was a very pleasant event, with serious collectors form Toronto or Ottawa, very enthusiast about previous vintages. It was a good opportunity for me, to discover their new Chardonnay and to meet the passionate team making the wine.

Me in « Enchanted Chardonnay »
Through more than ten years, they went through numerous upgrades and transitions and they are now reaching an interesting apogee rewarding their passion. Not only the scenery is really beautiful and very well maintained, but the people are truly dedicated to make quality wines and work respectfully with their environment. As context always impact your tasting, I must admit that the charming environment and staff had a positive impact from the beginning. After a few drinks of 2012, we went to visit the cellar with the winemaker now in charge, Keith Tyers.
Keith Tyers
He has been working with the successful winemaker previously in charge Deborah Paskus, and shows a real concern about letting the soil express itself vintage after vintage. No cheating! After ten years spent at Closson Chase he admitted his preference for 2007 and 2009 vintages. 
Keith sucking barrel into the beer Pichet
He was very enthusiast about showing us, how different, the same wine, taste from a barrel to another. They use only french oak apart one barrel made here in Prince Edward County that we had the chance to taste and compare. Keith is very open minded and to challenge everything. As the group asked questions, we could feel how dynamic and honest, he is. No elitism here, he wanted us to taste the difference between a french oak barrel and the one made in PEC. While sustainability and growing organic are very important values, his curse to excellence make him believe a too fast burning of the wood was the weakness of the local barrel maker. The micro-oxygenation was impacted by this and resulting in a greener wine. We could indeed taste it. I do not only love the place or the wine, but the people and the business practices are also very inspiring. You also feel his dedication and work involvement with each of his « 146 barrels and 146 different wines » as well as his vines on the field.

With a nice group of music under the tent and excellent bouchées, introducing the new vintage, Seaton McLean told us that CCV Chardonnay 2013 just received 94 points from Decanter in next September Edition. People behind CCV are tenacious pioneers facing challenges like the frost  damage in last May, but the owners have been patient enough to get their maturity, a hard work and a loyalty that pays off. 

I guarantee the place is worth a visit, if you can’t wait to get a case in your wine cellar :
