2014 Saint-Émilion Grand Cru

Château Tertre de la Mouleyre

2014 Saint-Émilion <i>Grand Cru</i> Château Tertre de la Mouleyre - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
It’s hard to imagine a more rustic setting in which to craft a wine of grand cru quality and refinement. Tertre de la Mouleyre’s organically grown grapes are vinified in a combination of miniature stainless steel and fiberglass tanks—far from the most groundbreaking modern equipment. The barrel room, if it can be called that, is barely large enough to accommodate the fifteen to twenty barriques produced in a given year.

This Saint-Émilion is all the more remarkable for these reasons. In this humble setting, vigneron Éric Jeanneteau crafts a wine of grandiose class. With a velvety opulence, it saturates the palate with lively, dense, profoundly delicious Merlot fruit. Its refreshing acidity and fine, regal tannin recall the Bordeaux of lore, before the days of high scores, overripeness, and excessive oak. Enjoy it now and over the next twenty-five years.

About Bordeaux

Often considered the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux and its wines have captured the minds, hearts, and wallets of wine drinkers for centuries. For many, the wines provide an inalienable benchmark against which all other wines are measured.

Bordeaux is divided into three winegrowing regions with the city that gives the region its name in the near geographical center. The “right bank,” or the area located east of the Dordogne River, produces wines that are predominantly Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The “left bank” is located to the west of the Garonne River and produces wines dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The third region, Entre-Deux-Mers, lies between both rivers and produces white wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle. Though technically in the left bank, it is worth noting the appellation of Sauternes, which produces arguably the world’s most famous sweet wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle as well.

Though many top Bordeaux wines are sold en primeur (in advance of their bottling) and often through a middleman known as a negoçiant, Kermit has always preferred to purchase directly from the winemaker. For more than three decades he has sought out small producers, who make classic Bordeaux wines and are willing to play outside the negoçiant system. This ethic has led to longstanding relationships, excellent prices, and perhaps most important—wines of great value and longevity.

Every three or four months I would send my clients a cheaply made list of my inventory, but it began to dawn on me that business did not pick up afterwards. It occurred to me that my clientele might not know what Château Grillet is, either. One month in 1974 I had an especially esoteric collection of wines arriving, so I decided to put a short explanation about each wine into my price list, to try and let my clients know what to expect when they uncorked a bottle. The day after I mailed that brochure, people showed up at the shop, and that is how these little propaganda pieces for fine wine were born.—Kermit Lynch
