The first time I tasted the Barruol/Lynch Hermitage Blanc was several years ago with the KLWM staff after work one night. It was love at first sip—and heartbreak by the last, since we had sold out of our shipment. I’m always happy to revisit this wine and marvel at the impressively delicate profile, yet towering potential for growth. It’s classic Hermitage Marsanne, with lychee, nectarine, white flowers, and a focused minerality that provides a solid backbone. It’s so pretty! One sip of this and you’ll be clearing out space in the cellar for a few cases.

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
