Legendary Importer Kermit Lynch Tasting

February 17, 2018, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Kermit Lynch’s name has become synonymous with discovering and importing authentic French wines that express their local terroir. He has had so much success shining the spotlight on small, artisan producers that he has won two James Beard awards and was knighted by the French government with their prestigious “Legion d’Honneur.” Join us as we pop corks on some exciting off-the-beaten path gems!

2015 Eric Chevalier Muscadet Cotes du Grand Lieu Sur Lie “La Noë”
Loire Valley, France
Eric Chevalier’s 2015 Muscadet shows bold minerality and savory tones that feel close to the earth, with delicate scents of linden and white cranberries. The texture is luscious and rich while the flavor is not at all sweet. This is a gracious and beautiful Muscadet that wine collectors may choose to age, or that drinks well right now with a plate of “fruits de mer”.

2015 Henri Perrusset Macon Villages
Burgundy, France
This is a superb Macon displaying good texture as well as lovely honeysuckle-infused fruit with notions of lemon zest and white peaches and surprising flavor intensity. The natural minerality and vintage’s good acidity give the wine definition and zestiness.

2015 Domaine de Fontsainte Corbieres
Languedoc-Roussillon, France
A sustained and very brilliant ruby color with beautiful violet tints. Immediate and generous on the nose with notes of fresh cherries and blueberries. Next, the richness develops with notes of cocoa powder and a delicate touch of licorice. On the palate, round and concentrated with a balanced structure in the mouth. The tannins are delicate and the acidity luscious. Everything showcases the fruit, which follows up with a long finish.

2015 Domaine Gioacometti Patrimonio “Cru des Agriate” Rouge
Corsica, France
97% Niellucciu, 3% Grenache

This elegant, unpretentious Mediterranean wine expresses a clean hue of garnet red. Briary fruit emerges with underlying steely graphite and a tinge of anise on the nose. Lean and earthy, this has plenty of acidity, along with juicy dark fruits such as blackberry and plum to balance.
