Kermit Lynch Does It Again With His 2010 CdR!

After traveling through France and tasting 800 wines that the intrepid importer Kermit Lynch has discovered over the years, the memory of this solidly built CdR rouge persists. Brilliant guy, Kermit… always sniffing out super great stuff, but surprising as it may seem, his “regular guy” wine was the best buy in the whole bunch, and it’s a wine of his own making! He found the growers, selected the grapes and oversaw the blending deep in the southern Rhone. Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Mourvedre and more in one big juicy, thirst-slaking glass. The purity of CdR, with the earthy terroir, rough herbs, wild lavender and big ripe fruit of life in Provence.

This is a stunning rendition of a most serious string of Cotes du Rhone by our pal Kermit Lynch. The 2010 has more tension than the 2009 which seemed to have more grenache expression, but it was a riper vintage. The 2010 is more brooding, deeper, denser; with good tension. A more serious wine at this price can’t be found. Bravo, again Kermit.
