Tasting Notes

Sitting in an almost "no man's land" between the northern and southern parts of the Rhone Valley lies the almost forgotten appellation of Brezeme. This historic area was once heavily planted but after the phylloxera epidemic and population centers began shifting, most farmers moved away from the area leaving behind their vineyards. What was once hundreds of acres planted dwindled to just a few dozen. Just a few insightful producers moved back to the region and a slow but meaningful resurgence has begun. Since Lombard began, they have grown their production to about 20 acres of holdings, some of which are newly planted. What makes the region particularly interesting are the heavy calcareous soils. Where the north is primarily granitic with some alluvial soils and the south has some chalk with lots of large alluvial stones, Brezeme is terraced limestone. Also, the reds are made exclusively of Syrah. The Lombard wines are vibrant and bright capturing the essence of the grape from this soil type giving it a little more tension than your regular granite grown syrahs from St. Joseph and Hermitage. Filled with lusty red fruit, garriguey spice and supple tannins, you'll be as impressed as we were with this little region on the rise. (Keith Mabry, K&L Rhone Buyer)
