Tasting Notes

"Violet perfume, leather and earth collide on the nose of this rich, intensely fruity blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. A fantastic bargain bottling that delivers consistently year after year, it offers plump, pristine cassis flavor etched by smoky, savory complexities. The finish is marked by a whisper of heat. Best enjoyed young."

The Producer

Jean Luc Colombo

Jean-Luc’s dream of winemaking became a reality in the early 1980s when he acquired his first vineyard. Hence the first vintage of the Cornas “Les Ruchets” (1987), which became the flagship wine of the Jean-Luc Colombo wines. With a long stride, the vineyard grew and Jean-Luc was finally able to fulfill his passion for wine by relying on a few solid principles: respect for nature and the different terroirs.

While Colombo produces several Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée wines in the Rhône, such as Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Hermitage, he is most noted for being a pioneer in the revitalization of the Cornas wine region.
