Through the lens with the Sutton Place Wine Merchant

“I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.” ~ W. C. Fields

“Age is just a number. It’s totally irrelevant unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine.” ~ Joan Collins

What is a Bad Wine?

Everyone has a different palate preference so objectivity is required to fairly determine if a wine is good, bad, or great.

When tasting wine, we enjoy a combination of its fruits, alcohol, tannin, acidity, sweetness, and body. Imbalance means one element awkwardly stands out. For example, a wine that leaves a burning sensation on the throat is out of balance, as there is insufficient fruit intensity and body to integrate (and contain) the alcohol. Another example is a commercial wine that is overly oaked without sufficient fruit leaving a hollow mid palate.

What is a Good Wine?

A good wine is not faulty and has a great balance. As mentioned, it means all the elements complement one another and no one element awkwardly stands out.

What defines a Great Wine?

A great wine is a good wine that has the below five factors:

1. Outstanding Varietal Character: It is important to remember the grape variety when assessing a wine. For example, having an intensely oaky nose does not imply quality on a Pinot Noir. However, being intensely aromatic, with a sexy delicacy and a silky texture would qualify.

2. Good Intensity: An intense aroma on the nose and palate implies a good concentration of fruits in the bottle. This can only result from using high quality grapes and undergoing a rigorous production method to preserve the varietal character. How do you tell if a wine has good intensity – You can smell its aroma while holding the glass at chest level. On the palate, it is dynamic and flavourful.

3. Complexity differs from intensity. For example, an intense wine can be simple (with only one dominant flavour). A complex wine makes you think. It has layers of aromas and a diverse range of flavours. The aroma changes with time. It is not one-dimensional, flat, or boring.

4. A long finish is a good indication of quality. How many seconds does the wine remain on your palate after swallowing or spitting. A great Bordeaux Grand Cru has finishes that last 30 seconds, but 15 seconds is a good benchmark for a great wine.

5. Emotional reaction: It is captivating, makes you happy, and more importantly, eager to have another sip.

Final words:

When judging wine, it is only fair to compare the wine against its variety, gauge the balance of its elements, and not be biased by our palate or brand preference.

8 More VIFF 2014 Films That Are Not Yet On Your Radar

radar 2Written by the Vancouver International Film Festival

In celebration of the commencement of our 2014 festival, we have compiled another list of fascinating but underrated films that you may have missed while flipping through our program. Take a moment to watch a few trailers and browse the movie intros below, we promise you will find a film or two that will pique your interest!

The Boy and the World:
In this unique and enchanting animated film, the story starts with a young boy standing heartbroken as a train carries his father into the distance. The boy will eventually leave home as well, moving from the country to a towering metropolis in search of his dad. In his adventures, he’ll float on clouds of cotton, ride on ships with the beaks of birds and encounter a world ruled by black-clad oppressors.

Beautiful Youth:
A 20-year-old still living with her younger brother and single mom, Natalia is also pregnant with her boyfriend Carlos’ baby. With no job prospects on the horizon and a few hundred Euros on the table, Natalia and Carlos agree to appear in a porno.

Finding Fela:
Legendary Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer and political dissident Fela Kuti is brought to life in this documentary from Oscar-winner Alex Gibney. Kuti’s raw charisma, many wives, mesmerizing musical performances and political aspirations and persecution have certainly been documented before, but director Gibney’s decision to fold in behind-the-scenes documentation of the 2009 Broadway musical Fela! makes this kaleidoscopic film as protean and rousing as Kuti himself was.

Free Fall:
When a senior throws herself from her rooftop, the suicide attempt fails to take. Consequently, she’s left to ignobly limp back to the life she was dying to escape. Her odyssey quickly assumes a phantasmagoric air, with each floor warped into a surreal showcase of bizarre spectacles such as a macabre gynecologist’s office, a dinner party frequented by well-heeled grotesques and a germaphobe’s hermetic sanctuary.
*Caution: Trailer below contains scenes that may be mildly disturbing to some viewers.

Li’l Quinqin:
When a dead cow stuffed with human remains is found in an abandoned WWII bunker, Captain van der Weyden is on the case. A Clouseau-like bumbler afflicted with a strange (and mesmerizingly funny) series of tics and twitches, van der Weyden, along with his assistant Carpentier, whose driving skills leave a lot to be desired, take two steps forward and three steps back as they hunt for the murderer. And all the while the dynamic duo must contend with recalcitrant villagers and mischievous interference courtesy of a pack of juvenile scoundrels led by the impish Quinquin.

Jungle School:
In this filmed based on the autobiography of Butet Manurung, Butet spents several years in the Bukit Dua Belas National Park helping tribal kids to become literate and numerate. She faces many challenges in her makeshift jungle school: her own misgivings about leaving behind a life of comfort in Jakarta, the arrogance and self-interest of her NGO boss, and the dangers from illegal loggers in the forest. Most of all, she also has to face the rivalries between the tribes who live in the jungle and the hostility of some to her influence on their kids. TICKETS.

Meat and Milk:
Given reactions to the recent expose of cruelty at a Fraser Valley diary farm, this revealing and unsentimental documentary of where cattle stand in our world forces us to witness the slaughterhouse but also revel in the glory of our land and the magnificent diversity of cowdom.
MeatAndMilk
Pulp:
This documentary follows the Britpop stars Pulp, almost two decades (and 10-million record sales) after “Common People” and “Disco 2000” dominated the UK charts. In the film, the band returns to their unlikely industrial hometown of Sheffield to play one last gig. Rakish frontman Jarvis Cocker once again assumes the spotlight, delighting in adopting the guise of a doddering retiree, making a show of fixing a tire and feeding the ducks.

Leftover Smoked Brisket? We’ve got a Wine for that!

bbq wineWritten by Peter Harlos, Sutton Place Wine Merchant

Barbera d’Alba might just be the world’s most perfect barbeque wine.

The other night, I made a pizza I thought I’d share with you. I was lucky enough to get my hands on some leftover brisket, from a previous days 13-hour smoke, that a friend did for a neighbourhood block party. Some fresh pizza dough, a home-made Kansas City style BBQ sauce, caramelized onions and diced roasted yellow peppers came together on the grill with the chopped up brisket to make one of the best pizzas I’ve made all summer.

What the heck do you pair with that?

Well you’ve really got a lot of options, but to me, one of the best is a well-made Italian Barbera, and Pio Cesare does a fantastic job. A classic Barbera is medium bodied, has a little bit higher acidity and a little bit lighter tannin. A well-crafted Barbera d’Alba, such as Pio Cesare’s, has all of this plus an intense soft rich black fruit flavour that playfully mingles on the palate with the sweet peppers, spicy sauce and smoky meat.

It’s a delicious and refreshing quaff between bites of what would otherwise quickly tire the taste buds. And when you’re done chowing down on your favourite sauced-up, pizza, brisket, pulled pork, chicken, or ribs, there is more than enough luscious complexity to keep you coming back for more.

Truly an Italian classic for our modern times.


Join the Sutton Place Wine Merchant on Saturday, September 20 from 4:30pm-6:30pm for an Italian themed wine tasting.

Can’t make it on the 20th? Celebrate September at the Sutton Place Wine Merchant with fantastic wine tastings.

Film Festival Welcomes Films From All Over The World: September 25 – October 10, 2014

viff2A fall fixture on the international film festival calendar, Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) is a microcosm of its home city: cosmopolitan, innovative, friendly, culturally complex, and very accessible. As the host hotel for the festival, The Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver loves watching all the creative, innovative, and entertaining films that make their way to the city during VIFF.

Critically acclaimed as “an unspoiled celebration of world cinema,” VIFF presents approximately 575 screenings of films from over 70 countries. An international team of expert programmers view hundreds of films and travel to some of the biggest festival to bring Vancouver the best of cinema from around the world.

VIFF is internationally renowned by filmmakers and fans as an event that succeeds in connecting filmmakers with large, attentive and eager audiences.

Film Series and Awards

Audience Awards were announced in an additional six categories, including the Rogers People’s Choice Award, Most Popular Documentary Film Award and Most Popular First Feature Award.

Films selected for the 2014 Vancouver International Film Festival will be presented in a diverse selection of series.

International Series

The Cinemas of East Asia For over 25 years, VIFF has presented one of the world’s largest and most adventurous collections of East Asian cinema.

Canadian Images Shorts Carefully curated short film programs showcase both established Canadian filmmakers and emerging artists we’ll be seeing more from in the future.

Vancouver Keeps Hollywood North Title

ClapboardGreater Vancouver spends a lot of time recreating other cities. It’s served as everything from New York and Forks to a town in Maine populated by fairy tale characters.

What attracts tourists to the area—the cultural diversity, the views, the food — also attracts Hollywood A-listers and their film crews. And, if you know where to look, you can follow in their footsteps.

One of the great things we hear from celebrities is the reason they love Vancouver… they’re allowed to be themselves. However, spotting stars on Vancouver’s streets can be an entirely different matter. When Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart were spied while filming The Twilight Saga, the Twittersphere went berserk over their whereabouts.

It’s not only Vancouver proper that gets the spotlight. The historic cannery village of Steveston in Richmond was transformed into Storybrooke, Maine, the setting for ABC’s hit Once Upon a Time. Walk down Moncton Street and you’ll see signs for Mr. Gold Pawnbroker & Antiquities Dealer and Storybrooke Country Bread. It’s a movie set come to life.

In fact, many TV series have made Vancouver their home base over the years — Fringe, Battlestar Galactica, 21 Jump Street (the original TV series with Johnny Depp), even The X-Files. So the next time you’re in town, keep your eyes open. Your favourite film or TV star could be just around the corner.

Now Open: Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar

Boulevard_Menu_OystersAn exciting new addition to Vancouver’s ever-expanding restaurant roadmap, Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar – located at The Sutton Place Hotel – provides a distinctive showcase for the celebrated culinary vision of Executive Chef Alex Chen and redefines the fine art of dining with subtle, unexpected, and playful approaches to cuisine, service, and style.

Chen’s seafood-focused menu is grounded in classical technique and training, while artfully infusing casual West Coast flair and creative hints of his international influences. Boulevard’s close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, Okanagan wine country, and nearby farms, fisheries, and ranches aligns with Chen’s culinary principle of using the best, locally sourced, farm-fresh ingredients.

Boulevard_Interior_SignageBoulevard_Interior1[1]Boulevard_Interior2Boulevard_Interior4

From early morning to late at night, the 290-seat restaurant offers guests a variety of culinary experiences: from the stylish dining room, seated oyster bar and craft-cocktail and champagne bar to the vintage-style lounge, private dining room, and expansive wrap-around patio.

Boulevard_Menu_Cocktail2COCKTAIL PROGRAM

Justin Taylor’s cocktail philosophy is an inspired recipe blending equal parts simplicity and high-quality, local ingredients. With a focus on craft spirits and bitters sourced from B.C. and Canada and house-made syrups and infusions, Taylor and his team combine a wide variety of styles, spirits, flavours and flair to underscore their unique emphasis on telling a story in each and every glass.

From the signature house classic Boulevardier (cinnamon and vanilla infused Canadian whisky, oak-aged Campari and Amaro, stirred and served over ice) to the Boulevard Bellini (white peach purée, peach liqueur, B.C. sparkling wine and peach bitters, built and stirred in an elegant coupe glass and garnished with violet ice) and the Boulevard Caesar (Canadian vodka, all natural clam and tomato juice, house spices, grated horseradish and a lemon pepper and smoked salt rim, built over ice), Taylor’s cocktail menu offers up fresh and unique takes on classic favourites as well as an array of signature seasonal house selections. 

With an emphasis on establishing a comprehensive pre-batched and bottled cocktail program featuring standards like the Manhattan and Negroni, Taylor and his bartending team are committed to curating a truly unique beverage program that will redefine cocktail culture in Vancouver, and set a new standard for spirit of service and hospitality behind the bar.

Stay tuned: next week’s blog will discuss the restaurant’s delicious, locally sourced menu.
