2020 Crozes Hermitage “Goutay”

Barruol / Lynch
Discount Eligible $42.00
SOLD OUT

There is a lot of wine in this wine! So much that it's a wonder they were able to fit it all in there. If I were allowed to say something as ridiculous as candied brambles on a bed of freshly fallen leaves, I might...but I'm not, so I won't. A more sophisticated take is something like, rich and powerful black and blue fruit accompanied by bacon fat, licorice, and herbs. Either way, it is delicious all the same.

Kermit inspecting wine barrels

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
