Description

Winemaking:
"Louis Barruol is an indefatigable force in the Rhone. He is the fourteenth generation in his family to be making wine in this sixteenth-century domaine in Gigondas. On what was once the site of a Roman villa, Louis' cellars show spectacular remains of old, Roman vinification vats carved into the limestone. Here, Louis works with different grape varietals from the Rhone, vinifying each parcel separately. Together, he and Kermit blend our Cypress Cuvee (Rouge) and Sunflower Cuvee (Blanc) from his own vineyards. Louis selects the best parcels he can find, and then Kermit shows up and either has a cuvee bottled unfiltered, or he blends to find the assemblage that satisfies his esthetic criteria." -Importer

"Value seekers and lovers of big bold reds, search no more! Loaded with character, sporting great structure and freshness, and black, meaty depths of fruit, it willmake good drinking for years." - Importer

Kermit Lynch Blends:
"Nearly forty years of doing business in France and Italy have given Kermit Lynch a level of expertise that few in the wine industry can boast. Countless hours with growers in some of the most famous vineyards and cellars of Europe have offered more than just a casual look at what it takes to be a great grower, let alone a great winemaker. Kermit Lynch was the first to champion the benefits of unfined and unfiltered wines, long before they had become fashionable. This belief is really a matter of taste, and the proof has always been in the glass, offering a purer expression of fruit and an unadulterated reflection of the terroir. Kermit's conviction has been so strong over the years that he has been able to persuade even the most hard-headed vignerons to test his theories."

"Long-term relationships with vignerons in every major wine growing region offer a tremendous array of opportunities. Every year, Kermit enjoys a creative collaboration with some growers to find the best of their selections. Together, they work towards creating a final blend that showcases the region in all its glory at a price point that is difficult to match." - Importer
