About the wine

A proprietary bottling from Kermit Lynch done in collaboration with the Cave des Vignerons d'Estezargues in the Southern Rhône! 

56% Grenache, 25%Syrah, 10% Mourvedre 7% Carignan 2% Cinsault produced from a soil of galets roulés (rounded riverbed stones) on the plateau Signargues. It was spontaneously fermented and aged 8 months in concrete, bottled unfiltered, unfined, minimal added SO2. 14.5%ABV

From the Importer:
Here it is: the very first edition of an exciting southern Rhône red! Our brand-new Côtes du Rhône Villages is a collaboration with Les Vignerons d’Estézargues, a co-op cellar located just across the river from Avignon. Founded in 1965, Estézargues has championed sustainable and organic viticulture and natural winemaking for decades, making it a rare exception in the world of co-ops. They work closely with their growers, emphasizing organic farming, and manage their cellar with a judicious use of low-intervention techniques: nothing is inoculated, sulfur is kept to a bare minimum, and the wines are bottled without filtration.
    Our cuvée is sourced from gobelet-trained vines on the nearby plateau of Signargues, which features the same rocky alluvial soils as Châteauneuf-du-Pape, just across the Rhône. The endless expanse of galets roulés (polished riverbed stones) that litter the ground is the ideal terroir for producing wines of great character and typicity in this iconic sun-baked region. We aimed for maximum drinkability in our blend, and accordingly, you’ll find plenty of hedonistic, purple-tinged fruit in this wine, along with a hint of wild herbs and lovely floral notes akin to lavender and violets. A touch of supple tannin and a stony finish provide texture and just enough grit to this smooth-flowing rouge. It is a plump, yet delightfully juicy Rhône red that can be sipped casually with a slight chill as an apéritif or on movie night, but has enough weight to stand up to burgers, pizza, grilled meats, or anything else you might throw its way.
    The label, designed by celebrated French artist Michel Tolmer, hints at our bottling’s playful balance, and travelers might recognize the likeness of the nearby Pont du Gard and Mont Ventoux. The pleasure and typicity on offer are the direct result of pristine, organically farmed fruit—mostly Grenache—ripened by Mediterranean sun, ushered along in the cellar with minimal intervention. With great bargains in wine becoming increasingly rare, we are excited to have found you one that is made with the same precision, care, and diligence as our favorite domaine bottlings.

The Region: Rhône Valley, France

Wines from the Rhône Valley, located in southeastern France, are celebrated for their diversity and exceptional quality. This historic wine region is divided into the Northern Rhône and the Southern Rhône, each offering distinct styles of wine. In the Northern Rhône, Syrah is the dominant grape variety, producing elegant and full-bodied red wines such as Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie, known for their rich flavors of dark fruits and peppery spice. In the Southern Rhône, blends are the hallmark, with Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre often leading the way, resulting in robust reds like Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, featuring bold fruit profiles, herbal nuances, and a touch of Mediterranean warmth. The Rhône Valley's white wines, predominantly made from Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne grapes, exhibit freshness and complexity, with notable examples like Condrieu and Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc. Overall, Rhône Valley wines showcase the region's terroir-driven character, making them a favorite among wine enthusiasts worldwide.
