One reason Pinot Noir is so revered lies in its uncanny ability to translate minute nuances in terroir. The foremost example, of course, is Burgundy, where, as you’ll see, a Pinot from Saint-Romain bears little resemblance to one grown in Santenay, just miles away. But even outside of Burgundy, Pinot Noir has fascinatingly diverse interpretations of local conditions. This collection explores Pinot Noirs from distinctive terroirs of both France and Italy. You’ll taste classic Burgundian renditions, a Blanc de Noir from Champagne, rosés, as well as reds from Alsace, the Loire, Alto Adige, and Friuli.
Very few domaines anywhere in the world can match this one pound for pound in ecological footprint, consistent quality across a wide range of wines, and that all-important combination of intellectual interest and pure deliciousness. Tasting Thierry Germain’s wines for the first time was love at first sip. A cellar tasting with Thierry in Varrains reminds me of tasting in Burgundy
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.
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.
