Food Pairings for Jean-Luc Colombo Rosé Blend Coteaux d'Aix-en-provence Cape Bleue Rosé
The variation in the reviews is very interesting. This is good, it is a GSM that tastes more like something Australian than French, it has a touch of sweetness on the finish. A fruit bomb. Good wine. Average for the price.

External Reviews for Jean-Luc Colombo Rosé Blend Coteaux d'Aix-en-provence Cape Bleue Rosé
Cornas “La Louvee” 2008 - 90 points, Wine & Spirits/ Coming off of vines more than 70 years old, this is dense with concentrated fruit. With air, it unfurls fruit flavors that are indigo-dark and velvet-textured, with notes of spice and wood smoke. Despite the density, it feels fresh and lively, a Cornas to drink now or to cellar for eight to 10 years.
La Louvee Cornas 2009 - 93 points, Wine Enthusiast/ A full-bodied, rich wine, with tannins either supremely smooth or just concealed under masses of plummy fruit. Yet despite the enormous ripeness, it’s not lacking nuance, boasting savory notes of espresso and leather. Drinkable now, but should age through 2023, at least.
La Louvee 2010 - 92 points, Wine & Spirits/ Cornas the Dominatrix: From a vineyard of syrah vines up to 70 years old, this is at once lush and hard as nails, the satin-textured fruit lashed to the tongue with oak tannins and stony minerality. It’s impressively structured and gorgeously fragrant, a youthful Cornas to tuck away for another 10 to 15 years.
Condrieu Amour de Dieu 2011 - 90 points, International Wine Cellar/ Light, bright yellow. Fresh, floral-accented peach and pear aromas are brightened by notes of green tea and dusty minerals. Juicy and light on its feet, offering bright orchard fruit flavors and a touch of anise. Fleshy but lithe, finishing with very good clarity and a hint of succulent herbs.
La Louvee Cornas 2010 - 91 points, Wine Enthusiast/ This is cool and restrained, with peppery flourishes layered over raspberry fruit. Rather than being massive or intense, it’s medium bodied, perfumed and elegant, with hints of dusty tannins that build slowly on the finish. It’s approachable now, but should age well through at least 2023.

Cornas La Louvée 2010 - 92-94 Points, International Wine Cellar/ Inky purple. Potent aromas of candied dark fruits, licorice and black olive, with smoke and espresso notes contributing to the wine's serious mien. Then livelier on the palate, offering intense black and blue fruit flavors lifted by a smoky mineral quality. Finishes broad and smooth, with lingering sweetness and excellent length.
Wine Tasting Notes Soft, delicate pink. Subtle hints of peach, rose petal and pepper on the nose. Subtle, round and full of finesse. Surprisingly complex, with intriguing notes of raspberries, fresh cherry, black olive and fennel. A great rose to enjoy on its own or with a wide range of appetizers, fish, poultry dishes and vegetarian fare. A perfect wine to share with friends.
Color : A superb deep red. Nose: Powerful, rich, complex: black fruit, gunflint, licorice, garrigue enhanced by a well mastered maturing in top quality oak. Palate: Harmonious and elegant, La Louvée exhibits a phenomenal concentration. One can appreciate the balance between the body and the structure. The long finish is enhanced by mature and silky tannins.
