We weren’t sure that we could come up with a better Black Friday offer for you than we did last year. After all, what is better than a 12-pack of Burgundy with a very generous discount? Then we found our answer: three different, discounted packs of Burgundy for you to choose from, with shipping included in the price of the combined 12-pack. Scroll down below, or read on if you’re patient. Last month, Pierre de Benoist visited Berkeley. At lunch, the vigneron behind Domaine de Villaine—founded by his uncle Aubert de Villaine, of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti—discussed what excites him most about his métier in Burgundy right now: the domaine’s further expansion in the Côte Chalonnaise and growing awareness around high-quality Aligoté, which Domaine de Villaine has championed for decades. As we talked and tasted de Villaine’s Aligoté, Rullys, and Mercureys, it came into clearer focus for me than ever before that, just as in Meursault, Gevrey-Chambertin, and other exalted Côte d’Or villages, world-class reds and whites are also being made in Burgundy’s lesser-known appellations, like Givry, Marsannay, Bouzeron, and Vézelay. It won’t be long before these AOCs are spoken of in the same breath as their venerated counterparts. Today we are excited to offer you not one, but three incredible Burgundy packs: a 6-pack for white Burgundy lovers, one for red Burgundy lovers, and finally a combined 12-pack with shipping included in the price of the pack for those who enjoy both. With these packs, you will enjoy past, present, and future classics at a price generous enough to make you feel as though they are all still undiscovered. What could be better than that?
Last holiday season, I finally took the leap and taught myself how to shuck oysters. To celebrate this feat, I walked over to the second-to-last rack in our shop and bought a bottle of the most ambitious and transcendent Muscadet we import: Domaine Brégeon’s Gorges, from rare, blue-green volcanic soil known as gabbro in the western Loire valley.
’Tis the season for sugar plums and festive confections! Gingerbread cookies, yule logs, pumpkin pies... Sauternes, Banyuls, Muscat—whether you prefer your treats baked or fermented, no holiday feast is complete without the final flourish of dessert.
There are hundreds of wines in our portfolio, but not nearly enough space in our monthly newsletters to feature them all. Here you’ll find recent arrivals and new additions to our site, from half-bottles to Jeroboams, across France and Italy.
Here at Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant we don’t believe in selling anything mediocre, and we would certainly not put our name on a wine we didn’t believe in. So our values are just that, wines that are full of value and quality.
