Winemaker's Notes:

This dry Rosé, a blend of 67% Syrah and 33% Mourvèdre, has complex flavors of fresh raspberries, cherries, a hint of black olive and finishes with an elegant touch of freshness and spice. Serve with a wide range of fish, poultry and vegetarian fare or as simply as an aperitif at a café terrace by the water's edge.

Clean and hot, with hints of papaya flavors. It's simple, with some unripe strawberries. Very tart.

2007 vintage, it's actually Grenache Syrah Mourvedre 50, 30, 20. Very nice blend. Deep purple color, leathery dark fruit and a silky smooth finish. A bit more "fruit forward" and less earthy than what I would have expected. Reminds me of a California Syrah more than a Cotes du Rhone. Nevertheless, a very good wine. Highly recommended.

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.

Acidic, weak fruit, steely mouth feel. Poor value even at this price.

Cape Bleue Rose 2010 - 88 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar/ Pale pink. Spices and orange zest on the nose, with a slow-building redcurrant quality and a hint of white pepper. Dry, tightly wound and refreshingly brisk, offering nervy but slightly hard-edged red fruit and citrus flavors. Finishes with good bite and length, echoing the citrus note. This drinks very well by itself.

2008 Wineries of the Year/ Check out the 2006 Les Abeilles Blanc, a bright, fresh bargain.

Les Abeilles Blanc 2008 - 88 Points, Best Buy, Wine Enthusiast/ This blend of 40% Clairette, 30% Grenache Blanc, 20% Viognier and 10% Roussanne offers up delicate lemony scents alongside hints of pineapple. It's a medium-bodied white, displaying freshness and finesse in its citrus, pear and melon flavors. Drink it over the next year.

/ Masterful vintner Jean-Luc Colombo creates a host of appealing wines, including this southern Rhone blend of Clairette, Grenache, Viognier and Roussanne. Les Abeilles -- the bees -- is pleasantly fresh, fruity, floral and just complex enough to keep each sip interesting.
