2015 Languedoc Rouge “Cuvée Kermit Lynch”

Selected By Kermit Lynch

2015 Languedoc <i>Rouge</i> “Cuvée Kermit Lynch” Selected By Kermit Lynch - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant



Many of you loyal customers have probably kicked back a few bottles of our Kermit Lynch Côtes du Rhône over the years, but have you tried Kermit’s new Languedoc blend? It’s made by Jean-Claude Zabalia, a venerable vigneron whose wines we have imported for nearly three decades.

Like our Côtes du Rhône, this Languedoc red seems simple on the surface, but in fact, the combination of high-elevation, stony terroirs, thirty-year-old vines, and the savoir-faire of Jean-Claude and Kermit create a wine with depth and character. Brambly fruit, a brush of tannins, and an underlying earthiness make this wine versatile. It paired perfectly with grilled pork tenderloin on a recent Tuesday night in Berkeley. —Clark Z. Terry
