Jean-Luc Colombo Cornas Terres Brûlées 2007

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Funky, barnyardy nose/ Salty, savory charcuterie aromas with dark blue and black fruits. Crushed stone. Iron. Lush on the palate with peppery black and blue fruit, along with some purple fruits. Sage and herb-infused flavors and savory notes. Rich and lush and endures nicely. Ends on a roasty tone. 89 pts. 3/9/13

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 Vines average 20-years of age on the steep granite slopes of the Rhône Valley’s right bank at altitudes between 820 – 1,100 ft. All work in the vineyards is done manually and without the use of pesticides or irrigation, respecting the local environment. Grape Varieties 100% Syrah Vinification Grapes are hand-harvested and de-stemmed. Fermentation takes places in stainless steel tanks for a period of 8 days at an average temperature of 79°F. Post fermentation maceration lasts a period of 15 days at a temperature of 84°F. The wine is then aged for 20-24 months in oak barrels (1 to 3-year-old barrels). When ready for bottling, the wine is fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered. Color A deep red Bouquet Pepper, redcurrant and red cherry are complemented by baking spices and cloves Taste A focused wine with flavors of tangy red berry, dark plum, licorice, and tobacco. This wine has a long, velvety finish with fine tannins and a slight minerality. Alcohol 13.7% Serving Suggestions Excellent with barbecue foods, roasted red meats, grilled poultry, hard cheeses and roasted vegetables.
