Louis Barruol is, in fact, the 16th generation to take hold of the family domain located in the southern Rhone valley. His family holds two estates in the Rhone—Syrah from the North and Grenache-based wines from the South. The man stays busy, continuing to forge relationships with incredible farmers, but most notably American importer, Kermit Lynch. He saw the value of these wines long before anyone out the country would have noticed and went with his gut. Producing small production Syrahs each year, he certainly holds his pride for traditionally made Syrah very high.
This is a unique collaboration between Louis Barruol and Kermit Lynch. Every year, Kermit arrives to assist in the final blend. For 2016, the result blended 12 different barrels coming from six sites across Cote Rotie. The fruit comes from vines about 30-50 years.
