If you visit Valentin Montanet, he’ll give you a tour of the hillside town of Vézelay and the abbey that marks the high point of the hill. From there you can see the expanse of Vézelay, and he’ll point out his different parcels—each one unique, from east to west, with varying elevations and exposures. The results are fine and balanced Chardonnays, expressing the right amount of fruit, crisp acidity, and limestone minerality to remind you precisely where this wine is from.
Whatever your grilling setup, there’s bound to be something in this collection of wines for you. There are sparklers, whites, and rosés if grilled seafood or veggies are on the menu. Lighter reds from Beaujolais or Chinon are great with burgers and dogs. If steaks, chops, or something you hauled out of the backcountry are what’s for dinner, hearty reds from Fitou or Piedmont will serve you well.
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.
Hot in your area? Pick up in our shop or we’ll hold your wine until it’s a good time to ship.
