Importer Kermit Lynch and the Brunier brothers of Vieux Telegraphe have run this estate in northern Gigondas since the late 1980s. They pull Les Racines from the property’s oldest vines, averaging 65 years, a blend of grenache, syrah, cinsault and clairette growing on a mix of sandy red clay and limestone. Vinified with ambient yeasts in cement tanks, then aged in foudres for less than a year, the 2015 is one of the prettiest Gigondas wines we’ve ever tasted. It’s brisk and red-fruited, the floral, cherry flavors taut and pure, gaining their depth from notes of stone and garrigue that keep the wine long and firm. ... More details

Region: Rhone Valley

For over two thousand years, the southern French region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers and wineries of many different types. The ancient Greeks were the first to discover that a wide range of grape varietals can flourish in the rich soils and micro-climates which typify the region, and little has changed to this day. In the modern age, the Rhone Valley is recognized around the world as the home of excellent quality white, red and rosé wines, as well as some of the most highly respected blended wines on earth. The region is split into two distinctive sub-regions, with the cooler, continental northern sub-region producing primarily Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines of exquisite quality, and the hotter southern sub-region growing a much wider variety of grapes.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
