Top 10 wines in the US press

12th June, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Kermit Lynch, Côtes du Rhône 2011, France

kermit-lynch-cdr-bRebecca Murphy, writing in the Dallas News, called Kermit Lynch a “legendary” importer, distributor and retailer of French and Italian Wines in recommending its 2011 Côtes du Rhône.

She said: “His time with the vintners whose work he admires has inspired Lynch to try his hand at creating wines under his label. He works with local growers and winemaker Jean-François Pasturel to create several wines such as this one from the southern Rhone Valley in France. Light strawberry flavors from Grenache and Syrah’s moody blackberry fruit with a whiff of black pepper join forces in a precise and savory expression of a classic style from the region. Its light weight, decisive acidity and dusty tannins insist upon food. Enjoy it with a pizza or seared meat hot off the grill.”

Price: $17 to $20
