    QotD: I think they are great. I do not like relying on people, they are slow. I am the guy that always uses the self-checkout lanes in the grocery store and Home Depot.

    Robert had me clearing my throat through the entire episode. That phlegmy voice of his was killing me. These two episodes didn’t do much for me, I have to admit.

    Nice to hear about the De Tunnel, but this pair of episodes is a pazzzz for me.

    Gary, LOVED these two episodes. Robert was your best guest in a long time. I learned a lot and was thoroughly entertained. Nice interaction, too.

    I wrote my own comments for this episode before I read the comments of others. Now that I’ve read them, I have to say that I’m blown away (and, frankly, disappointed) by the nastiness of many of the comments.

    I’d rather watch 100 episodes with understated guests like Robert Camuto than 1 episode with an obnoxious clown like Jim Cramer.

    Low-key or hyper doesn’t matter to me when it comes to WLTV guests — what matters is whether they can talk about wine and answer questions for +/-30 minutes. The episodes on either side of this one (the Rokov and Cru shows) show what happens when someone with a passion for wine gets the chance to have a conversation about it. Answering questions with questions doesn’t cut it in this format, unfortunately. That said, loved the beret.

    QOTD: I love the self serve check ins. Now I have some questions, Gary:
    1). Have you ever tasted an “I Can’t Believe Its Not Butter” flavor in a wine?
    2). Did you watch Bottle Shock?

    Rock that beret!

    Good show – liked the guest, seemed pretty laid back.
    GV – you will get your ass kicked if you wear that beret with a Jets logo on it. Not for the Jets logo, just it makes you like a bit like a p#@$y.

    QOTD – It depends – sometimes, I like to get to the airport and use those machines because I travel a lot and know where I am going. However, on my international flights, I like to get some more personal interaction.

    does your nutsack hurt after having this guy on it for a 2-part episode?

    QotD: anything that gets me out of the airport faster is OK with me. i’ll install the chip under the skin if i could skip the security line.

    Another great guest. Another great show. Keep em comming. ANd bring Robert back in the future. Id love to hear more about him and his life in France. I should probably just buy his book for that.. *nudge* QOTD: Hate em, even though Ive never used them. Its just technology invading another part of our lives. 1984 will one day become a worldwide reality. Hopefully I’ll be able to drink my wine and not “victory gin.”

    Very good two part episode (although I am so far behind that I wish there were some 10 minutes eps in here somewhere). BTW, while I agree that “dessert wines” aren’t just for dessert, I am still calling them dessert wines because that’s what most people understand them to be. If I say to a guest, “would you like a Sauterne”, most people I know won’t know what the heck that is.

    QOTD: I love the airport kiosks and I love checking in on-line. Robert, you may live in France, but join us in the 21st century. 😉

    I was really taken back by the negativity of some the comments concerning the guest, Robert Camuto. Despite these comments, I was intrigued enough to go out & but his book CorkScrewed and thoroughly enjoyed it. I envy him his access to all levels of the French wine industry – from the traditional domaines to the upstart non-conformists to what appear to be whack-jobs. An oak barrel has that shape to replicate the shape of an egg or womb, an environment that nurtures the development of the wine???

    I particularly enjoyed the very last chapter where Robert “discovered” the chatus grape. It’s not only this discovery of what is produced in the different terroirs around the world, but also the journey.

    Maybe Robert & I can hookup to discuss this neverending journey the next time I’m in Pezenas.

    FYI: You know a guest lies about watching the show when they don’t come prepared with a question of the day. If they act surprised…. they don’t watch the show.

    Ok I’ve read some of the comments, and like I said in the previous show’s comments, I just watched these episodes. I TOTALLY disagree with some of the negative comments. I LOVED these 2 episodes. I think Robert was interesting, knowlegdeable, and provided an awesome balance to the show. The exchange about sweet wines was absolutely priceless. Good job, great show!

    QOTD: To be honest, I like the kiosks. For me, they tend to speed up the process and I’m usually in a rush because I’m always running late.

    QOTD: A cost cut too far? It's still finding it's ffed and I don't like relying on trying to check in online and finding the service is down and having a stressful journey to the airport

  • John__J

    Neat to see a Loin de L?Oeil on the show, I’m impressed! I have had a dry version before, not bad with mild white fish.

    qotd: I think we’re gonna be seeing more and more of that sort of thing
