External Review by Palm Bay International:

Les Bartavelles Chateauneuf du Pape 2006 - 91 Points & Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast / Colombo is better known for his Cornas, but this '06 CdP stands out for its ample weight and creamy texture, along with dark flavors reminiscent of prune and black olive.

Les Bartavelles Chateauneuf du Pape/ A fragrant, spicy blackberry nose becomes rich, bright black fruit flavors on the palate; firm but not tannic. Chicken Provencal.

/ Medium red. Spicy red berry and cherry aromas are complemented by garrigue , dried flowers and zesty minerals. Racy, nicely focused raspberry and cherry flavors offer good depth and finish with fine-grained tannins and good grip and length.

Les Bartavelles Chateauneuf du Pape 2006 - 89 Points, International Wine Review/ The medium ruby Les Bartavelles is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre showing aromas of dark cherry and plum with earth notes. Its attack is soft and round with very ripe dark cherry fruit and notes of dark toffee on the palate. The finish exhibits fine-grained tannins with dark cherry and earthy notes.

Hailed as the winemaking wizard of the Rhône, Jean-Luc Colombo has achieved a high-profile international reputation for making innovative wines that are original, memorable and bursting with personality. Despite a resolute aversion to change in the Cornas region, Colombo has brazenly introduced innovative methods in his vineyards and throughout the production process based on a respect for nature and his fundamental belief that good wine is the culmination of three key elements: terroir, human endeavor and modern winemaking techniques. The result? A more accessible style of Rhône Valley wines, reflecting an exuberance of fruit and depth of expression and showcasing the full potential of the Syrah grape when grown in the unique terroir of Cornas. Through his intense dedication, Colombo has brought the wines of Cornas into the international limelight. The company now embraces wines representing major appellations of the Rhône Valley as well as the Languedoc and Roussillon regions of southern France. Production Area Rhone Valley, France This wine has its origins in one of the best terroirs consisting of river pebbles in Châteauneuf du Pape. All work in the vineyards is done manually and without the use of pesticides or irrigation, respecting the local environment. Grape Varieties 45% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre Vinification The wine undergoes 4 days of pre-fermentation maceration followed by 7 days of fermentation in steel vats at a controlled temperature of 82.4°F. There is then a 3 week period of maceration at 86°F. The juice is free run, and spends 18 months in one-, two- and three-year-old oak barrels. The wine is not filtered but is fined. Color Dark purple Bouquet Lovely scents of ripe red fruit, licorice and sweet spice Taste A powerful and full-bodied wine with rich notes of blueberry, wild herbs and lots of spice. The palate is mature and rich with velvety tannins, ending with a long finish. Alcohol 13.5% Serving Suggestions Pairs exceptionally well with game, hearty stews, steaks and Italian dishes.
