Kermit Lynch, with over forty years in the wine trade, has acquired a relationship with vignerons and a palate many can only dream of. He was the first person to champion unfined and unfiltered wines at a time when it was hardly fashionable. Though it sounds odd to the average wine consumer, Kermit knew that this part of the winemaking process was essential to retaining purity of fruit and terroir from where it had been harvested. This caters to a particular palate, but Kermit knew his clientele had acquired the taste for the wines he’d been importing over the years. Because of his long-term relationships with growers, Kermit has been able to seize opportunities in creative collaborations. The results are wines with prices hard to beat that showcase their regions in the best light. The Cypress Cuvèe is a joint work with winemaker Jean-François Pasturel of Avignon in the southern Rhone.
