Kermit Lynch Selection 2021 Cotes du Rhone, "Terres d'Avignon"
Long Beach chef and Thai District restaurant co-owner André Angles has family connections to this wine. His mother owns a vineyard that is part of the Terres d’Avignon group where Kermit Lynch imports makes its component selections for this super-popular blend. Easy-going, straight-forward and correct, this wine does what Cotes du Rhone should do, mainly provide enough fruit and balancing acidity to cut through the fat in a slice of salami, and finish dry doing it. It’s medium-bodied, and depending on the year our first or second best-selling Cotes du Rhone.
