Description

Louis Barruol is an indefatigable force in the Rhône, the 14th generation in his family to be making wine in Gigondas. On what was once the site of a Roman villa, Louis’ cellars show spectacular remains of Roman vinification vats carved into the limestone. Here, Louis works with different grape varietals from the Rhône, vinifying each parcel separately. He’s taken to acting as amicro-négociant, working with top growers in the region who still work with Sérine. Producing only a few precious barrels of each cuvée, Louis is helping to save the authenticity and identity of old Côte Rôtie parcels. Together, he and Kermit blend our Northern Rhône wines and a Southern Côtes du Rhône Blanc and Rouge from a selection of Louis’ purchases.

Louis Barruol sources this Crozes from granite hillside plots that yield deep, chewy reds with concentrated aromas of smoke, black fruit, and graphite.

“Louis Barruol favors sérine, an old variation of syrah, for his wines, and sources grapes for this Crozes only from the region’s granite hills rather than the flats. He collaborates on this blend with importer Kermit Lynch, offering a wine that’s gorgeously perfumed, all black peppercorns and lilies, smoke and cured bacon. All that fragrance rides on juicy, brisk plummy fruit, the wine immediately inviting.” Wine & Spirits
